Night Shift Presents

Mestiza
Choreographed and performed by Olga Barrios

Mestiza (mixed raced woman in Spanish) is a project based on artist Olga Barrios’ personal research into her cultural identity as a choreographer of Latinx background. Digging into her Indigenous origins in Colombia—where the traces of Indigenous people have been erased as in many places around the globe—the work expands into a wider dialogue between Olga as a woman of many colours and the many other diverse voices in the Americas that seek to connect with the erased traces of their histories.
