Hector will also present his own solo performance Nightwind, in which he draws on his own experiences and those of his brother in the Medellín of the 1990s. Max has been working with the victims and perpetrators of torture for over twenty years, based on a shamanist approach. He will talk about some of the people and stories he has encountered in his therapeutic practice. The presentations will be followed by an audience discussion considering the ethical and emotional dimensions of this work.
