Country: AustriaChile / Mexico
Type: Dance / Performance
Year of Creation: 2018

Amanda Piña’s The Jaguar and the Snake is part of the third volume  of Endangered Human Movements, a long term project dedicated to dances and cultural practices that have already vanished or are threatened with extinction.  

The Jaguar and the Snake  inspired by the manyfold beings populating the oral and visual traditions of Amerindian cultures. Based on a deep iconographic research Amanda Piña, Lina Maria Venegas and Yoan Sorin work on embodying beings where the animal, the human and the vegetal meet fuse and transform.

The performance explores how these concepts are understood in Amerindian terms creating a visionary world between ancestral indigenous knowledge and contemporary performance art.

What other forms of relationships are possible between animals, humans and plants?
