Nayácircular is an international performance collective made up of Adriana Carpio (Perú), Hannah Priscilla Craig (USA/Spain), Zoya Alina Currimbhoy (Pakistan), Emma Minkoff (USA), and Flor Nicolini (Argentina).
Our first collective action was in 2018, “Immerse/ ہونا محو /Sumergir”, involved each of us entering a natural body of water at the same time in each of our locations (Perú, Spain, Pakistan, USA, and Argentina).
