The lines that divide nations cross into our minds.
ImShift is a collage of contemporary dance, poignant visuals and original percussive sounds that untangle our perpetual relationship to ‘la frontera’ (the border). Exploring the liminal spaces of living in the in-between making sense of two languages and two cultures, ImShift highlights the constant experience of bridging the South and the North. This visceral performance narrates stories of our re-created terrain where complexities of identity, resistance, healing and survival exist within each other.
ImShift is a tribute to the many who have died attempting to cross ‘la frontera.’
