About This Event
Makuyeika uses keen, artistic sensibility to address themes of great social, cultural, and human value that create original narratives and theatricalities of Mexicos indigenous people. Makuyeika means wayfarer in the language of the Wixarika people and was formed, as part of a Julie Taymor World Theatre Fellowship project. Andares (Pathways) centers on the lives of indigenous youths in Mexico, 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, and community resistance that indigenous people face at the crossroads of modern life and tradition. 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.
