Victor Quijada’s new, deeply personal work draws its inspiration from his experience growing up in L.A, a first-generation MexicanAmerican. Coming out of retirement and returning to the stage, Victor along with six company dancers explore themes of identity, home, and motherland. The work features a sound score remixed live onstage by composer and DJ Jasper Gahunia sampling traditional Mexican Corridos, Ranchera, Norteño, and Canto Cardenche, a little known, raw and vibrant singing tradition from the rural north of Mexico. This evening-length work challenges Victor and the audience to reckon with their own ideas of origin, belonging, and displacement— topics pulsing in our society today. Estimated artist fee: Estimates do not include housing and local transportation: $24,000/performance; $40,000/week
