Caracol, Corazón de la Tierra, Flor de la Esperanza

Elvira and Hortencia Colorado are founding members of the Coatlicue Theatre Company, Chichimec Otomi storytellers, playwrights, performers, and community activists based in New York City. They are also members of Danza Mexica Cetiliztli, New York Zapatistas, and the American Indian Community House. Caracol, Corazón de la Tierra, Flor de la Esperanza was created after the Colorado sisters lived and worked with communities in five autonomous Zapatista municipalities in Chiapas, Mexico. Their text is woven from the voices of the Zapatista indigenous women they encountered. It is a collage of their thoughts, stories, and music—the fire of their resistance, struggle, and hope for a better future. This play was performed at the Teatro Francisco Nunes in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, as a part of the fifth Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, which was titled Performing Heritage: Contemporary Indigenous and Community-Based Practices.
