Performed in the round, creating a sacred ceremonial space, Secretos de la Raíz (Secrets of the Roots) calls on ancestral knowledge in a contemporary landscape, as the dancers explore the interconnectedness of all earthly and celestial elements, and share native spirituality and values as a means to inspire a renewed respect and connection with community and country.
