Language and Its Loss

This presentation is partially a testimonial and as well, a performance based on how the loss of one’s indigenous language can inspire one to come to understand the value of language itself. By drawing from a multicultural childhood experience (Mexican American), one that points to how one becomes the ‘other’ through the absence of language, the viewer can see how language constructs multiple borders and how those borders constitute and consequently come to signify shifting identities or the ‘many selves within.’ Song, dance and theater serves as the medium for this presentation.
