PEREGRINA is a 70 minute long screendance film project. In videodance the bodyâ€™s movement is crafted and composed for the screen. This one is about a female pilgrim (peregrina, in Spanish) and her sacred journey to an ancient shrine.
The film will explore the relationship between consciousness, body movement, and natural and cultural landscapes through the staging of a pilgrimage traveling eastward from the Pacific coast to the ceremonial center of Chavin, located in the central Andes of Peru. Once the character reaches the temple, she participates in an initiation ritual with a 'teacher plant' (Wachuma, also known as San Pedro Cactus, scientific name Trichocereus pachanoi) after which she meets the spirit that resides inside the temple and is reborn into a new level of consciousness.
