Nepantla is a series of movement-based explorations and rasquache (resourcefully tacky) play, used to reflect, generate, question, and re-imagine the Mexican American experience. Highlighting Gloria Anzaldúa’s theorization of nepantla, a messy in-between space, the collective oscillates between brown memory, re-membering, sorrow, and alegría (joy) to manifest the affective embodiments that locate and situate what in-between-ness looks, feels, smells, sounds, and tastes like. In doing so, Primera Generación Dance Collective strategically navigates culturally iconic images, stories, songs, stereotypes, and rituals to visibilize the harsh realities, imaginative potentials, and pleasure of mexicanidad(es) in the U.S. and beyond.
