“Xnha’ We” is a full-evening solo-show in six parts that explores the complex relationship between a mother and a son. Through movement, physical theater, costumes, and projections, the performer takes an in depth personal journey that narrates, through an abstract theatrical language, the past, the present, and the future of their relationship.


“Xnha’ We” means Mamma in the Zapotec dialect.
