Jump-Start Performance Co. has chosen she wears bells, featuring librettist jo reyes -boitel and choreographer and dancer Giomara Bazaldua, to be produced June 26 & 27, 2020.
About she wears bells: Aztec goddess Coyolxāuhqui appears as the moon, after having made the wrong choices time and again when she followed her own pride and the voices of her own children (who serve as a chorus for the dying world). She is isolated and will flounder unless she opens herself up to transformation and wholeness.
What if the world begins again in splinters? If we are torn apart and our pieces thrown into the sky, to be reconfigured? What if this possibility for a new body/understanding is within our reach, shining our own light back at us, the moon a mirror toward our possibility?
Sometimes we have to be broken in order to reclaim a life. But is an Aztec god willing?
