’62 Center presents: “Andares” on the MainStage Fri, Sept 30 at 8pm & Sat. Oct 1 at 8pm.
Andares is a theatre creation about the lives of indigenous youth in México, devised collectively through personal anecdotes, ancestral myths, as well as traditional music and art forms.
The play shines light on a range of realities: land usurpation, widespread violence, ancestral duties, community resistance, — that indigenous people face at the crossroads of modern life and tradition.
Meaning “pathways,”Andares is a genuine, eye-opening, and intimate close-up on Mexico’s most remote corners and the extraordinary stories of its humble, everyday inhabitants.
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.
