Originated & Performed by Miguel Hernando Torres Umba
Bringing together contrasting narratives from a range of Colombian voices, Stardust tells the story of the chain of lives and deaths that turns a coca leaf, sacred to indigenous communities in Latin America, into a line of coke on a mirror in the western world.
In this multidisciplinary solo performance, Colombian artist Miguel Hernando Torres Umba, confronts the painful stigma left by the narco history of his country and unravels his own and the western world’s responsibility for a trade that kills thousands in his homeland.
Playing to sell-out audiences and receiving rave reviews at Vault Festival and Edinburgh Festival 2018, the show returns to the stage in 2020 with a renewed version to continue its journey as a vehicle that sparks an urgent conversation.
