Oct. 1 | 8:00 PM | CenterStage | $10/$3 (students)
Woven from ancestral myths and traditional music, Andares shines a light on a range of realities – land usurpation, widespread violence, community resistance – which indigenous people continue to face at the crossroads of old and new ways of life. Makuyeika Colectivo Teatral is a theatre ensemble dedicated to creating original works about the narratives and theatricalities of Mexico’s indigenous people, touching with keen, artistic sensibility themes of great social, cultural, and human value. Makuyeika was formed after an extensive search across the country’s indigenous communities by director Héctor Flores Komatsu, an inaugural recipient of The Julie Taymor World Theatre Fellowship.
There will be a post-performance discussion with the artists after the September 30th show.
