Camila Arroyo’s “Soldaderas”

June 24, 2022

In “Soldaderas,” choreographer, performer and director Camila Arroyo explores a modern-day interpretation of soldaderas, the women who fought in the Mexican Revolution. This excerpt features Arroyo engaging in her own rituals—from getting her nails and hair done at an outdoor night market to sharing a meal with friends—interspersed with solo dance moments throughout Mexico City. “Soldaderas” is one of 165 films from 79 countries being featured at the Amsterdam-based Cinedans FEST ’22, running now through June 26. An online iteration of the festival launches today, with films available to view through July 1.
