In the heart of America, the language of the bodies follows a tortuous path. In a performance midway between dance and theatre, two Indigenous artist from Mexico, of Nahua and Mixteco descent, share with us their quest for identity by drawing on their cultures and the history of their ancestors. They present scenes of their metamorphoses through time, revealing the upheavals and constantly driven by the hope of finding themselves.

Languages ​​and myths will guide this inevitable journey that redraws borders and makes skins coated by will or force. Unraveling what unites us, what pulls us away from the other and from ourselves, Tlakentli questions identity through migration and explores the myth of our original elegance.
