The Cosmic Twins -

International Commedia dell'Arte Day 2019


The Cosmic Twins is a play for young audiences with music and dance, based off of the Maya K'iche Pop Wuj, that tells the story of the creation of the world, and how the sun and the moon came to be.

Nelwat Ishkamewe presents this play in celebration of Transgender Awareness & Native American Heritage Month 2018, with sponsorship by Campaign for Southern Equality, Trans Justice Funding Project, and Southern Vision Alliance's Queer Mobilization Fund, and Trans-Latinx DMV.
