Go on a sensory journey into the heart of Latin America!

REWIND pieces together a scientific examination of a crime secretly buried. Combining music, energetic movement, puppetry, projection and innovative lighting, this poignant, visceral show reveals an intimate backward journey into the life and death of Alicia, a young woman who dared to resist against authoritarianism.

The multi-award winning show is inspired by and draws from Forensic Anthropology – the first science in history to investigate human rights violations.
