      EVENT DETAILS
      Fandango Zapoteco: Teatro del Pueblo Para el Pueblo

      Based on interviews and research, Teatro del Pueblo Para el Pueblo is a live theatrical representation of the customary practices leading up to a traditional Zapoteco wedding (called fandango), as celebrated in the town of Coatecas Altas in Oaxaca, Mexico. This collective project enables ordinary Zapotecos to share their knowledge and experience with others. The Fandango project is an opportunity for younger generations to learn about their heritage from the elders. The gender gap and increased cultural and civic participation will also be addressed in the performance. The actors of this communal play are young and old day-to-day members of the town of Coatecas Altas, now living in Madera.
