Filomena

A performance that explores themes close to the author Indira through the character of the young migrant Filomena.

The performance intervenes in the historical context of Mexico during the Guerra Cristera of 1935.

The main character is the young and mysterious Filomena, who with her family has fled the violence in Veracruz to settle in the remote village of Los Paxtes. Her family of musicians is trying to find a new meaning in life on the farm. 

Through Filomena’s point of view, the production reveals how the family copes with their history as well as their new reality. Feelings of confusion, disapproval of the violence around her, and a desire for freedom are the main themes of Filomena’s dance story. 

Told through dance and movement, the story follows Filomena’s journey towards freedom and her own identity.
