In this way, not only is sought to empower the Maya women through testimonies and anecdotes that teach the wisdom of the elderly, but also to promote the State Theater Exhibition (MET) Yucatán 2018, where the perfomers are people from indigenous ethnic groups.
Through this project, director and actress Socorro Loeza intends to have a link with the public, especially the youth, with the ethnic identity of the region.
The experiences of five people from the municipality of Tecoh will be addressed, both in Maya and Spanish language.
“It is a proposal that emerged to give voice to the inhabitants of that community, who throughout their lives have exercised their autonomy in different situations, and one of the most common is the decision to migrate to the city or stay in their rural communities” she said.
She also said that this theatrical play also features stories about the dreams, thoughts and worldview of the Maya ethnic groups that occupy the Yucatecan territory in the 21st century, whose indigenous nature is dynamic and goes beyond the pre-Hispanic past that proudly precedes them.
The creative project was developed during a year and included the preparation of the performers, Luz Gamboa Cocom, Aurelia Ruiz Ek, Justina Puch Hoil, Juanita Tamayo Caiuch and Elvia Chan Canul, in narrative, music and dance, and will also in the preparation of the choreography “Dance of the heads “by Carlos Castro Tello.
