THEATRE & DANCE

Moonlight (Ch'lsi) is a dance theatre piece rooted in native Mapuche culture - the indigenous tribes of Argentina and Chile. For them, the time of moonlight was the time of the ceremony. "Ch'Isi" uses the languages of dance, theatre and video projection to tell the story of a young woman seeking to trace her family ancestry to better understand her own identity and legacy. Exploring the mythical and real worlds of three generations of women, it travels deep into the roots of Mapuche culture and the tension between these and modern urban life.
