Danza del Venado Yaqui

Magaly Flores & Colibri Mexican Dance Group

My proposal is to deliver a talk about the historical and cultural significance of one of the most revered and ancient Pre-Hispanic dances amongst the Yaqui and Mayo tribes from the North of Mexico – Danza del Venado (Dance of the Deer).  The impact of the coronavirus has meant that it has been very difficult for the people of this region to celebrate their strongly held traditions and beliefs during Springtime, when the dance is usually performed.

Sembrando Futuros

Mestisa Latin American Folk Music Ensemble

A project exploring the expression of creativity through growing flowers and food in our gardens during lockdown. All members of Mestisa, like many of our friends have been indulging in good food, trying to grow healthy diets to ward against the danger of the disease that haunts us all. We turned to Pachamama (mother earth) for comfort and to food that keeps us connected to our roots and families as we talk about recipes and growing tips. Many of the foods we grow also have Latin American roots and like us have settled here, like potato, pumpkin, maize, beans and artichokes. We also are part of a supportive online community of growers called Seeds of Hope, which gave us the idea for the project.

We will be playing a set relating to food, plants and garden, the visuals and interpretation will reflect the theme.

The Storyteller

Tanya Cusan-Espinosa

To make a video that reflects on my past work and the work that I’ve been creating with my mother Cecilia Espinosa de Cusan who lives in Colombia translating her stories from Spanish to English. The video will involve the reading of some of the stories in both languages. During this time I’ve also been working in my allotment nurturing and growing seeds, watching how everything is interconnected getting more and more interested in permaculture and seeing this as an opportunity for developing my work and how I might use the permaculture philosophy in relation to my storytelling and theatrical work.

Quarantine in Patagonia

Alonso Farias y La Doctrina

I’ve spent my quarantine creating new music while I work in a farm in the beautiful Patagonia (Chile). It’s been very inspiring and I’d love to share some of these creations in an online concert for Feria Latina 2020. These songs are putting together some lyrics about my feelings and political thoughs in pandemic times. The music is a fusion of Latin American folklore and afrodescendant rhythms such as blues, funk, soul. I will perform most of my set alone and my band La Doctrina will join me in one song. This online set features English subtitles for non-Spanish speakers.

A walk through South America

North of Chile to Ecuador and back

Two of our associate artists filmed as they traveled into the heart of the Andes regions during a trip in 2015. This is more than an exotic holiday or a trekking adventure, it is a full immersion in local traditions, people, history and wild nature. A very low budget long time trip, step by step to meet the spirit of Andes folks.
