Synopsis

 


It is a tribute to the courage of the native people of Comechingón (Argentina). Its red sandstone mountains carved by the winds, have the caress of the moon, the roar of the sun.

Ongamira, rich in minerals, is the energy of everything created and carries the heritage of their sculpted souls in the caves and in the collective consciousness that is maintained through the cultivation of native plants. An awareness that, in the present, makes us reflect on that past and at the same time learn to be with silence, understanding our place in the world. Ongamira is the body of the sacred land and the spirit of the ancestors.

The choreographic and theatrical work is located in the Ongamira valley, passing through the Pajarillo hill, the Uritorco hill, the Charalqueta hill and the city of ERKS. Rituals and transformations take place in the valley of the moon, the coexistence of primitive man and woman, the discovery of the parasitic possession of our organs and our brain. The force of a land that expels and attracts people in the same way. Ongamira is solitude and teaches us to discover the here and now, connecting physically and spiritually. The nest, the walls we build, the environment necessary for subsistence, the death that is always in front of our eyes. Ongamira was a healing center that, even in these times, places us in the very center of the earth and the cosmos, taking care of us as individuals and in community. Ongamira beats and is a certainty in the heart.

Woman Scream 2022 | Manifesto

 


We know where our scream comes from ...

We descend from strength, from the legacy of women who forged the path with their struggle so we never forget who we are, nor where we come from.

We raise our scream for them: the abused, despised for their race, gender, religion or knowledge. Those who still fight for the authentication of their rights, still suffering the worst of outrages. For the women forgotten by law, bonded to a restless, ancient scream. For the others, who swallowed their silence and cradled the anger seed inside their bowels.

For those who got up to make us stronger, raising their flag in their voices higher, standing out in search of a collective dream. For every woman immersed in the nightmare of an uneven world, where the balance turns in favor of violence, instead of justice.

For those we don’t mention aloud, to protect them from cruelty and anarchy. For the women who are not among us, for whom we make a minute of silence.

For all the women we are: The matriarch, the healer, the brave one, the goddess, the free, the wise, the resilient, the women of all colors, creeds and races that inhabit within us.

We are the creators of a single invincible soul, we are the SCREAM that does not perish, nor give up! We are the ORIGIN of the world and all of us united, are ONE.
