Abrazos de Luz at Performance Space

Abrazos de Luz was an evocative performance evening held on June 13th at Performance Space in New York. Curated by Guadalupe Maravilla, the event featured four distinctive artists: Koyoltzintli, Alx Velozo, Mónica Palma, and Nima Jeizan. Rooted in the animistic belief that all entities—be they birds, plants, rocks, the ocean, food, animals, buildings, cars, or even a hospital chair—possess intrinsic energy, Abrazos de Luz offered a profound exploration of interconnectedness.

Maravilla selected these artists for their significant roles within their communities and the societal representation they embody. The spiritual perspective of animism, central to many ancient cultures, was pivotal in the performance, resonating deeply through the artists’ practices. Maravilla emphasized their unique ability to channel love and empathy, highlighting the crucial need for such energy in today’s world, frequently marred by unwanted wars, political turmoil, forced migrations, mental health struggles, and an overwhelming influx of information.

Through their performances, Koyoltzintli, Velozo, Palma, and Jeizan conveyed a message of resilience and hope, underlining the essential human qualities that bind us together amidst the chaos of contemporary life. Abrazos de Luz celebrated their artistry and profound impact on the collective spirit, offering a beacon of light in tumultuous times.
