Nayra (2004)

Nayra is collective creation of La Candelaria that explores the unconscious and the popular worldview about health, death, and displacement.‘ Nayra’ is an Aymara word that means ‘eye,’ but can also mean‘ancestors,’ ‘memory’ and ‘vision.’ Director Santiago García describes the piece as ‘an exploration of our myths and legends as both Colombians and Latin Americans.’ This piece enacts a time/space of assemblages that address the quest for connections more than the connections per se. By the end of the piece, mirrors blow to pieces, thus recalling not only a fragmented shared memory, but also a country crushed by violence.
