¿CÓMO PUEDO AMARME?
Created by Anabel Lugones De León and Charlie Chauca
A desperate escape for calmer waters in an ocean filled with sharks, ¿Cómo Puedo Amarme? dives inside the mind of a Non-Binary Cuban-Dominican, ELLE , amidst their ongoing fight with clinical depression. Through dance, spiritual encounters and scar-filled memories, ELLE, attempts to outswim a storm of sharks to find peace within themselves or drown in familial waters.
Performed by Anabel Lugones De León
Directed by Charlie Chauca
Costume Design by Izzy McClelland

Today is Reckoning Day, which means the Three Fates must select one random person to die by flipping a switch. The women—Clo, La-La and Morta—have performed this sacred duty for centuries. But today, when one of them questions the validity of the law, the Fates have to make the hardest decision of their lives.
