Feature Artist Practice – NAKA Dance Theater
José Navarrete and Debby Kajiyama will present excerpts of BUSCARTE (Searching for You). BUSCARTE is a performance that contemplates the forensic anthropology findings in the case of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa 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. The work contemplates the effect of the trauma of forced disappearance on ever-widening circles in the community.
