Mazarte's "Puebla York" is a public arts project for all communities that contrast the hardships & poverty faced by the immigrants of Puebla, Mexico. with its vast "artistic richness" of culture, dance and craft - a paradoxical reality of most immigrant New Yorkers. The project showcases dance and art from the north, central and south regions of the state of Puebla, including age-old dances such a "La danza de Quetzales", "La danza de Acatlaxques" and "Huapangos de la Huasteca Poblana". Each dance highlight its ancestral origins from pre-Hispanic times as well as its European influences. Every authentic and hand-made dance costume, instruments & other props will be made specifically for this project by indigenous artisans still living in the state of Puebla. Creating a bond between the artisans in Mexico and the immigrants in NYC is key to accomplishing our artistic vision
The "free" event will take place in the New Outdoor ArtsEastNY stage, as part of the International Day celebration.
