la.jpg

Spiritus Mundi VS Aztec Ouroborus  is the new performance of La Pocha Nostra. Employing its “robotic-baroque/cyborg-kitsch” aesthetic brand and acidic humor, the performance brings a series of humorous and daring shamanic and psycho-magical actions that continue La Pocha Nostra's quest for a more complex notion of identity and of social belonging. Through the presentation of a living ritual language, the performance  have the  intention to activate the collective imagination as a territory for artivism. In the play, radical imagination is used as a tool against extreme conservatism and violence, ruthless corporate power, social media narcissism, cultural gentrification, intolerance, and loss of faith in humanity and democracy.
