Mexico Maya


Mexico Maya

Dzul Dance will present “Mexico Maya,” a journey through the rich history of Maya and Mexico into contemporary western culture, created earlier in 2013 by artistic director Javier Dzul to celebrate the 13-member Company’s 10th Anniversary.   Performances are January 24 & 25 and January 31 & February 1 at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (entrance on 25th Street).

Performed in three sections, “Mexico Maya” begins with the Maya creation legend of the twin ball players.   The twins had the power to play ball with the stars, moons and the sun.   They were summoned to the underworld when the noise of their game woke the gods of Xibalba, who then sacrificed the twins.   From their blood a forbidden tree was born, and when a Mayan princess ate the forbidden fruit of the tree, she became pregnant with the first human being.

In the second section choreographer Dzul explores his path from Maya to Mexico, Cuba and the U.S., and how that path has affected his loved ones.   The work evokes the experience of missing one’s home and the feeling of being a foreigner in a foreign land.

The third section illustrates the inspiration and internal revolution needed to survive and grow.   Dzul looks to the future of his company and the development of his artistic vision.
