Production Details

Cuatro Vientos: Middle of Nowhere

Cuatro Vientos: Middle of Nowhere, is a dance-theater production and ritual performance about the risk and freedom of being alone. On a pilgrimage through the Mojave desert, a woman meets the elements with teeth, lungs and curiosity only 20 miles from where the remains of a woman's corpse were found near an abandoned car by the local U.S. Marine base. The ancient desert mythos transforms her body into wind as she crosses into the spiritual realm, discovering lost souls, lost shoes, bullet shells and animal tracks. Cuatro Vientos is a performance ritual dedicated to murdered and missing women.

Cuatro Vientos: Medio de la nada, es un espectáculo de danza-teatro y ritual sobre el riesgo y la libertad de estar solo. En una peregrinación por el desierto de Mojave, una mujer se encuentra con los elementos con dientes, pulmones y curiosidad a solo 20 millas de donde se encontraron los restos del cadáver de una mujer cerca de un automóvil abandonado por la base local de la Marina de los EE. UU. El antiguo mito del desierto transforma su cuerpo en viento mientras cruza al reino espiritual, descubriendo almas perdidas, zapatos perdidos, casquillos de bala y huellas de animales. Cuatro Vientos es un ritual performático dedicado a las mujeres asesinadas y desaparecidas.
