About the show “Pachamamo”
PACHAMAMO is an ancient goddess for the Latin American indigenous people. She is the “Mother Earth”, the fertility goddess. What is the relationship we have with mother earth? When we travel – does the relationship change? If it does – how?
Carrying sounds, tricks and other knick-knacks in his suitcase, our clumsy traveler tries to explore a new place. Or is it new? Maybe it feels familiar afterall.
Through humorous and unexpected ways Cronopio explores what it means to be a traveler.
