unAchifa work in progress
Quito, Ecuador- Lima, Perú
During the Balao Creacion online residency, I wanted to reflect on how ancestry moves within us. And this invisible presence could be asleep, waiting to be awake, so how does this awaking take place?
The work in progress intersected dance, film and family archive. The video is a manifesto for writing the other story: the hi(story) of “𝐮𝐧𝐀𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐚”.
Exploring what (hi) story means it is a way to write decolonial narratives, which from my point of view, reside in the body, memories, storytelling and culinary recipes. This exploration merges the hidden history of ingredients from the past, living in the present.
The residence took place during the lockdown in Peru at my grandparents house (living room, kitchen and desk room). During a month I combined daily routine of taking care of my Oma (maternal grandmother) and develop a practice and rehearsals.
