the loneliest part of here is now

by Zaquia Mahler Salinas

the loneliest part of here is now by Zaquia Mahler Salinas is an immersive dance film and live movement experience which explores the dichotomic nature of desire for human connection and an endless struggle with self. It is a biomythographical assortment of abstracted memories embodied by a collection of women- connected yet alone. Through a synthesizing of our own lived histories to the greater collective memory, and a deconstruction of the collective memory to manifest story as individuals, the loneliest part of here is now is a magical reinvention and retelling of the self through connection to others.
