About The Event
Cuatro Vientos: Middle of Nowhere is a multimedia dance-theater production that confronts fears and strategies of walking alone. The Piñata Dance Collective investigates the physiology of fear, the concept of freedom and finding risk and refuge in the natural world as women/non-binary contemporary dance artists, vocalists and ceremonialists. It’s inspired by Choreographer Liz Duran Boubion's 10-week residency in the Mojave desert during the pandemic and is dedicated to raising awareness and building solidarity for murdered and missing women across the globe. Part of the show is based on research, workshops and conversations with artists and women who are working with families actively searching for missing and murdered loved ones in Mexico.
