Curanderiando: Tales of Healing By Carolina Quiroga-Stultz

More info: –

Curanderiando: Tales of Healing is a bilingual storytelling/dance performance based on Legends of those who became healers in different indigenous cultures, The Maya (Guatemala), The Sapalla (Bolivia) and the Mapuches (Argentina). In the stories, the healers undergo a physical and spiritual journey and find guidance from plants, animals, other beings to help their communities. Overtime their stories became compendiums of knowledge.

The program includes an hour of traditional tales performed/dance by the Carolina  Quiroga-Stultz and artist Eleonor Maciel, followed by an intermission and a presentation about ¨Curanderismo ¨ by anthologist Elizabeth De La Portilla and Yerbero Jacinto Madrigal. The performances are free and family friendly. The whole performance requires the audience participation to convey the magic of stories and the power of healing.

In addition to the historical and mythical contents, the project wants people to reflect on their own ways to heal nowadays, as there are many caminos or paths to find balance within the self. The storytelling project encourages everyone to become sanadores of their own lives and to transform our communities. The stories educate the audience by remembering a common cultural knowledge that is linked to our own heritage.
