Advisory Warning: Full frontal female nudity

The voices, language, and bodies of Chilean artists—native Mapuche singer and composer Elisa Avendaño Curaqueo, and contemporary flamenco dancer Natalia García-Huidobro—weave together in a ceremony revealing their own stories—two lives that reflect Chile’s history and the search for its future. The work was sparked by the events that were detonated after the murder of Camilo Catrillanca, a Mapuche former student activist and farmer. Touching on questions of identity and destiny, people and nature, the “female being,” and the balance of power—the work transcends conventional ideas of theater, dance, and activism. Conceived and directed by internationally renowned Samoan artist Lemi Ponifasio, a champion of both the avant-garde and indigenous people.
