Early Stage Commission (contribution) – La Llorona

La Llorona is a choreographic exploration of femininity, internalised emotion, and cycles of joy and violence through the juxtaposition of a Colombian oral tale of a woman who is abandoned and in her grief drowns her child and contrasted with lived experience as an Anglo-Colombian woman.
