Luis Sahagun, in collaboration with El Ballet Folkloric Manquetzalli, and Simantikos Dance Company, workshops a new performance inspired by the concepts of trauma, stereotypes, personal histories, and the idea of unity through pain. Mixing Mexican folkloric movements with contemporary dance gestures, Pain is Our North Star transforms hybrid dance practice into ritual and directs focus towards a life-size sculpture that serves as a surrogate ancestor.
