More About the performance: REWIND is a multidisciplinary performance that combines physical theatre, puppeteering and original live music. REWIND creates an universe, which combines the science behind Forensic Anthropology with fact-based stories of resistance. Inspired by testimonies of refugees whose lives were affected by dictatorship in 70s in Latin America and young adult migrants whose lives have been affected by human rights abuse in Latin America (2019-2021).
Forensic Anthropology became a science of resistance, methods of investigation were evolved in Latin America to find forced disappeared people during military dictatorship period. Through the analyses of injuries on bones, the science led a revolution in how human rights were investigated. Rewind unearth stories of victims in the search for justice. We put in perspective the past as we look at the future, placing empathy in the foreground of the work.
