Hecho a Mano with Nelda Reyes: Huichol Traditional Yarn Painting
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 from 5:30-8:30 PM
The Hichol people, or Wixarrika, as they auto-denominate, are a native group from the region that now encompasses Durango, Zacatecas, Jalisco and Nayarit in México. They have a long tradition of creating bead, yarn and carved art. Although initially for ceremonial purposes, they now commercialize them, allowing us to enjoy and learn from their design, colors and symbolic significance. In this workshop, each participant will create its own Huichol-inspired yarn paint, following the yarn and wax technique.

Ingenio Milagro: The inaugural INGENIO MILAGRO play festival will take place September 8–10, 2017.

INGENIO MILAGRO serves as an intrinsic step in the development of new full-length theatrical works through concert and table readings, guiding playwrights and their works from concept to production. Directors, dramaturgs and actors bring the plays to life through a concert or table readings for an audience of theatre professionals and members of the public. The readings are followed by a moderated feedback session. Playwrights choose their level of involvement from rehearsal to presentation to feedback session, remotely and/or in person.
