emniskata is a choreography that makes visible the art of Lukas Avendaño, MUXE choreographer who was born in an indigenous community of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca; putting in the center what is usually on the periphery, to empower and honor those who express themselves freely and fully from the double spirit: masculine-feminine; with his art he transforms the body into a symbol to merge the masculine with the feminine, the animal with the human and the traditional with the contemporary.
The work gives presence to male nudity and reveals the poetics that arise from bodies that forcefully show sensitive qualities such as tenderness, trust and vulnerability, and suggest the idea of an expanded masculinity more towards vitality and subtlety than towards power and violence. Delve into the hidden womenisms that inhabit the masculinity that manifests itself in our state, which has made the charro and the mariachi its flag, leaving far and hidden, the powerful feminine symbolisms that cross us and define us.
In this scenic installation, gender is blurred, turning bodies into a political act: a body that declares itself collective, recovering its place in the territory, and with it, the origin from its vestiges. In the chiaroscuros of nature, a contemporary Coatlicue manifests her nature as a woman
