“She is covered in these mystical creatures that go all the way down both arms to her finger tips. On her left shoulder she has this large tattoo of a deer, the one animal who could pass from the earth to the spiritual world and back again”
Inspired by the alliance of women with nature in nomadic culture, this solo explores the intuition and vigilance of the feminine figure.

My Dust Will Tell is a journey of courage, exploring the urge of escaping from what may be imposed on us.
"This process has allowed me to go beyond my boundaries, I have been able to relate real memories to every moment of the choreography which have evoked a natural symbiosis of movement and emotion from the beginning of the creation. Every day in the studio has been a new challenge, a new discovery of my own self"
Dancer, Piedad Albarracín Séiquer
