min folkdans / ihttiā mahcēhua
A solo performance work by Adelina Larsson Mendoza,.
min folkdans / ihttiā mahcēhua explores Adelina's cultural heritage and considers the themes of Identity, Nostalgia and Politics. The artistic research involves enacting pre-hispanic and post-colonial rituals and practices that she was brought up with in Mexico, and to study the folk music and dance traditions of her fathers village, Färila in Hälsingland, Sweden.
This project was initially supported by a Research Residency at Critical Path Choreographic Centre for Research, The Drill December 9-13 2019.
Over 2021-2023, it will feature as a part of an initiative to promote regional arts equity called 'Din Folkdans' under a two-year Regional Arts Fellowship, which offers mentorships for five emerging CaLD artists in South West WA.
