Yerba Bruja | Film and Q & A

A fusion of storytelling, music, prayer, ritual, and propulsive movement to make a performance that is also an opening for healing.

Named for the hearty medicinal plant “that can survive the most hostile of conditions,” Yerba Bruja centers multimedia storytelling from the start.

Yerba Bruja is a meditation in three separate, interlocking parts: Remembrance, Resistance, Return

Together, these moving parts weave a narrative of great reverence, remembrance, resilience and resistance in a city—and on a stage—where those stories have been overlooked, suppressed, and ignored for so long.

Q & A with director/producer Jasmin Agosto, and artist/storyteller Haben Maria follows the film.

Sponsored by Latina/o Studies and Religion
