NOMADA is a journey of the Creator through three worlds; Sky World, Underworld, and Earth. This journey helps maintain harmony of all the earthly and cosmological elements. It is the physical and spiritual act of renewal, affirmation, and restoration.
Inspired by personal stories of displacement, rituals of water, cycles of sustainability and the connections of our bodies to land, this performance is a journey rooted in in-depth research and fieldwork. A restorative process and a gateway to connection, the experience honors the stories of Diana Lopez-Soto’s Otomi and Purepecha ancestry, contemporary community, history and relationship to the land and culture of Michoacan, Mexico.
Combining aerial movement, installation art and projection design with contemporary Mexican Indigenous dance, NOMADA is a deeply textured work that reflects the continuously changing balance of the earth.
