About the Show:
Reincarnations portrays pre-Hispanic mythology alongside Mexican cultural icons and traditions to explore ideas of destiny and life after death.
The choreography is based ontwo souls that meet and form different relationships over the course of several lifetimes. Reincarnations highlights Ih Can Cavil, the Mayan guardian of souls, and Mexican icons such as Emiliano Zapata, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. The choreography also uses Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) and ‘la Catrina’, the Mexican personification of death, as a way to explore different cultures’ ways of understanding mortality.
About the Artists:
We fuse dance with aerial arts to communicate indigenous pre-Hispanic and Mexican culture and create bridges between contemporary art and historical heritage. By transforming bodies into earthbound and airborne forces of nature we break physical, cultural and political boundaries.
