Rubén Graciani

Purigado is an Esperanto word for cleansing, purification

Purigado explores ideas of need versus want, the push and pull of our individual hopes and desires, go away versus please stay, and the idea that sometimes something breaking down before rebuilding is a powerful cleansing of the spirit and an opportunity for growth.

Created for and premiered by DanceWorks Chicago at Theater Rüsselsheim in Rüsselsheim, Germany on February 9, 2022.
