Maria Cecilia Schwedhelm

Maria Cecilia comes from Mexico City and from stories of wandering ancestors. She comes from barbacoa on Sundays at the big house surrounded by fences crossed only by roosters and wild cats. In her research, Maria tries to dig holes on those walls, discover weak spots, climb ladders, or be a cat to peek, listen to, learn from and with other people, other stories and languages far and near her own. She is currently facilitating workshops on language reclamation through arts and performance-based pedagogies in Oaxaca, Mexico.
