✷ Get to Know Us: Interview 
Cruda Collective is formed by interdisciplinary artists & experimental filmmakers, Laila saber Rodriguez (CAI-CDMX) and Andrea Galano Toro (CL, ES), based between Barcelona & The Netherlands. The duo aims to re-enchant the ways we approach and tell stories through rewilding practices. Rewilding, within Cruda’s practice, means to embrace precarious cycles such as collapse, death, hybridity, rebirth into the way we produce and speculate with knowledge(s). Re-wilding means to activate the wilderness, playfulness and the glitches within storytelling & mythology. Through this, they dance with and activate other worlds and voices, such as landscapes, elements and monsters. Cruda aims to re-configure the linear conditions, and inhabit a hybrid ecosystem of symbiosis and emergence. Cruda operates through workshops, audiovisual performances with film, and spell-casting practices.
