Memorias Eternas is a dance performance about plastic pollution by Raquel Santiago, presented during the Mahahual Libre de Plástico Festival in Mexico in June 2019. Memorias Eternas refers to all the plastic memories we leave behind. Every piece of single-use plastic we have touched contains all the memories of us playing, eating, drinking, having fun, loving… When we die our body decomposes, but our plasticized memories endure for hundreds of years.
Alchemy Spinning is a whirling practice inspired by the hypnotic whirling of several ancient dance traditions, such as Sufi dervishes. Raquel offers an unique whirling dance style that combines her experience in Sufi, contemporary, Middle Eastern and butoh dances.
