„These dances are in fact creative social devices to visualize and intervene into socio-environmental relations, stressing the interdependence between all life forms in this mountainous region.“ — Alessandro Questa
Climatic Dances is the name of the fifth volume of the Endangered Human Movements*, a long-term research carried out by choreographer Amanda Piña on the current loss of planetary cultural and biological diversity. Inspired in two dances from the Highlands of Puebla in Mexico, danced by Masewal people, in a context of climate change and mining exploitation. These two dances Tipekajomeh and Wewentiyo constitute the beginning of a trip towards the depths of the mountain and towards the re-enchantment of that which modern science called geology.
* Endangered Human Movements is the title of a long-term project, started in the year 2014, focusing on human movement practices, which have been cultivated for centuries all over the world.
