Cuatro Vientos: Middle of Nowhere is a multimedia dance-theater production that confronts fears and strategies of walking alone. Dancers (Female and non-binary individuals) investigate the physiology of fear, the concept of freedom and finding risk and refuge in the natural world. It’s inspired by Liz Boubion’s 10-week residency in the Mojave desert during the pandemic and is dedicated to raising awareness and building solidarity for murdered and missing women across the globe. Part of the show is rooted in conversations and workshops with Cristina Lopez who works with women in Mexico who are searching for missing and murdered women in Mexico.
Choreographer: Liz Duran Boubion, with dancers and vocalists: Abigail Hinson, Catalina O’Connor , Rosie Dater-Merton, Clairey Evangelho Sound Design: Michael Dadonna . Supported by: Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers – FLACC, Dancers’ Group and San Francisco International Arts Festival (SFIAF).
