Requiem por un alcaraván by Lukas Avendaño

This performance will provide a rare exposure to the per-formative dance of the Zapotec man-woman known as the ‘muxe’. Muxe culture provides a shrouded social acceptance for certain taboos while celebrating what is still seen as a transgression. A local bird, the curlew, whose mating ritual often ends up sacrificing the male for the female, inspires the dance. The piece also speaks and relates to subjects such as homophobia, and the way in which many queer and non-gender conforming people, mysteriously disappear in Latin America.
