El Lobo y La Paloma, The Film explores the theme of loss, connection, and ancestry. Through fully original flamenco dance, Arabic music and song, poetry, and projected imagery, El Lobo y La Paloma tells a story about the loss of a loved one and the mystical connections between physical and spiritual worlds. This work was made during a time of turbulent loss in our world, in our nation and in our communities. This work is dedicated to the father of Lindsey Bourassa, the program's Creator and Choreographer, yet extends its intention to honor all losses endured; that of losing a loved one, a homeland, a freedom, a right, an identity, an ability - and the reconstruction of our relationship with our lost being or object through the process of grief and healing.
I was so fortunate to see the live premiere of this performance. It was a few months after my husband, who was Megan's godfather, had died. It was tremendously moving. I can't begin to recommend it enough to anyone grieving the loss of a loved one - and who isn't. And it's a beautiful performance. I intend to rent the film so that I can see the close-ups you can't get in a theater.
