Bringing more than 30 artists on stage, the Yucatan Scenic Festival will present its 12th edition starting Nov. 6.
Under the slogan “Desplegando mundos, arribando a sueños” (“Unfolding worlds, arriving at dreams”), the FYE has invited 14 groups from Mexico, Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Canada for face-to-face and digital activities.
Luna Aranda, general director of the Festival, presented the FYE 2021 program accompanied by Loreto Villanueva, Secretary of Culture and the Arts of the State of Yucatán.
“In this 12th edition, and because of the health contingency we’re still experiencing, it is clear to us that the body and its artistic expression is a constant we must work to maintain. It is a sample of the harmony that is created between traditional and new expression formats, a rediscovery of artistic work,” Luna Aranda said at the press conference.
The performances of the FYE 2021 will be held in compliance with all health and safety measures, in the facilities of the Yucatán Dance Conservatory.
The program begins with a virtual Meet & Perform with dancer, actor, teacher, and choreographer Jason Martin at 11 a.m. It will be followed by the presentation of the group Ts’ook Danza Plataforma Escénica Ciudad de México with the piece Errante vagabundo, and at 8 p.m., followed by the screening of the video dance Naturaleza muerta: Días líquidos de Créssida Danza Contemporánea Yucatán.
Uróboros Plataforma Escénica (from Mexico City) will premiere the piece La sombra on Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. This performance is recommended for adults.
