Yucatecan Regional Theater seeks to become an “Intangible Cultural Heritage”

May 11th.- In the next few days the state congress could discuss whether to proceed with the initiative to declare the Yucatecan Regional Theater as Intangible Cultural Heritage of the State of Yucatán, presented in response to the petition of comedians Dzereco and Nohoch, their father, actor Mario Herrera Flores (“Mario III”), and a group of artists.

PAN congresswoman Manuela Cocom Bolio was in charge of presenting the project that highlights the importance of Yucatecan traditions.

“Our state possesses a vast cultural wealth and many elements that can be protected from the changes of modernity and the advance of new cultures and customs, but there is one that has remained for many, many years and that has a particularity that shows us the genuineness of the Yucatecan soul in the beautiful scenic expression, carrying all the links of its culture every time a curtain goes up, without a doubt we are talking about the Yucatecan Regional Theater,” she said during her speech.

Cocom Bolio said that in regional theater the cultural baggage that gives identity to the state is used, the Spanish spoken in Yucatán and the ancestral rituals of the uses and customs of the entity are brought to the stage.

“In a regional theater play, one can find not only the mirror of how we are, but also the strengthening of the links of our culture because in it we can appreciate other disciplines, such as the trova, the jarana, our festivals and popular people of the society in which we live,” said the legislator.

She regretted that transculturation leads children and adults to adopt customs from other parts of the world, which weakens their own and leads to the disappearance of identity.

If the initiative is approved, mechanisms would be generated to expand regional theater in the public’s taste and thus ensure its permanence in time.
