Stories From Home

Workshop & 
Performance

Tempe Center for the Arts

"Stories from Home centers Nuevomexicana, Xicana, and Mexican American bodies, aesthetics, and experiences from the U.S. Southwest on concert dance stages, where such themes and aesthetics are rarely seen,” comments choreographer Yvonne Montoya.

Oppenheimer
& Contemporary Dance?

Choreographer Yvonne Montoya created the dance “Pajarito” as part of the evening length work “Stories from Home”. The dance illustrates Yvonne's journey of grappling with her father's illness and ultimate demise due to exposure to hazardous materials at Los Alamos laboratory. The work highlights historical context from her Nuevomexicana perspective. The connection between Oppenheimer and "Pajarito" serves as a reminder of the human toll that scientific advancements can exact.
