Me Hago Falta, which translates to “I am missing myself”, is an interdisciplinary dance theater piece from Suku Dance Lab, exploring the relationship between the pride and prejudices in the Afro Latinex community in America. Director Talia Moreta calls upon various Afro Latinex artists of different mediums to tell the story of an ambiguous Latina woman who represents the struggle this community faces to break stereotypes and rise up in finding their identity. Dancers and artists will act as narrators and guide the audience through the space with cinematic and dynamic scenes constructed through research and scripted from experiences of the artists involved.
