Mi pajón me habló is about having a one on one conversation with one’s afro hair as an Afro-Latina. This piece takes the audience on a journey of the performer exploring/navigating their internal struggles with their afro hair and breaking away from all the negativity it had taught around this type of hair. Through this, comes an awaking of appreciation and love for afro hair in it is natural state in the Latinx community. It was showcased at the Spanish Harlem Creative Movement Dance Festival in NYC. It was featured on Canal América TV, Telemundo and Click Magazine NYC (pg. 19).
