"CARACÚ," inspired by a Guaraní word from Alejandra's native Paraguay, symbolizes the profound essence of one's being, beyond what's visible. This performance takes us on a journey, exploring the complexities of a Latin American woman's life as an immigrant in Germany. Through movement and emotion, it narrates her roles as a mother, dancer, and wife, challenging societal norms and personal aspirations. It weaves together moments from her experience, painting a vivid picture of a multi-layered identity. "CARACÚ" invites the audience to delve into questions of identity, inner strength, and life's challenges from a deeply personal perspective.
