MeM#7 —26) Mujeres Venado (Colectivo Venado-Paulina Ruiz Carballido. México) 6:01’ min. from Movimiento en Movimiento on Vimeo.
Mujeres Venado (Women Deer) is a cine-choreographic work inspired by the figure of the deer as a magical, sacred, mystical and powerful creature. The symbol of the deer is associated mainly with the Huichol culture (Mexico), although we also find it in almost all the mythologies, beliefs and religions of the world. The deer is a carrier of the spirits of nature, capable of opening access to other worlds, connecting us with the forest and the depth of our being. Mujeres Venado exalts the resonances and poetic and panic frictions between femininity, masculinity, fertility, rain, drought and the war of being a body in nature through sensitive bodily rituals.
