XO is an evening of dance woven from archetypal imagery, the powerful vocabularies of the collaborating artists, and the need to tap into narratives inside and outside ourselves in order to move through the current times. XO is an evening of dances by tender men – Princes and Lovers, and powerful women – Queens, Witches, Mothers, Warriors. XO is a cauldron of gorgeous power, upending and mending, a mythical series of dances to help us navigate the new world order.
BUSCARTE is a multidisciplinary performance that focuses on forensic anthropology findings in the case of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College who were forcibly disappeared in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico in 2014. The ongoing search for the students has led to the discovery of other mass graves that reveal the epidemic proportions of the hidden violence.
NAKA Dance Theater presents BUSCARTE (Looking for You). An inquiry of reality and fiction, experimentation and matter-of-facts, BUSCARTE is an elegy, a cathartic dance, a tapestry of motions and emotions reflective of our collective unconscious, and a quest to make visible that which cannot be looked at directly. BUSCARTE is created in collaboration with composer and sound designer Adria Otte.
