The Indians also do theater is the title of the video dance and theater installation that invites the viewer to take a tour of various unknown spaces of the Los Pinos Cultural Complex, to appreciate an artistic proposal that portrays and recreates the nature and culture of the indigenous community of Borotalpada, India. Creative work that premieres on May 28.
It is a proposal that combines the efforts of the scenic creator and philosopher Jean-Frédéric Chevallier, based in Mexico; the art production company Sukla Bar; the video artist Alejandro Orozco, and members of the Trimukhi Platform group, founded in 2008, in the Santhal Borotalpada indigenous community, located in West Bengal, India, which according to the census carried out in 2015 by the five Moroles (responsible for the community in santhali), had 481 inhabitants spread over 77 houses.
Sponsored by the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Cuajimalpa campus, the video dance and theater installation is made up of recordings made between 2019 and 2021 in said Indian community.
It is an artistic proposal in which “the projections intersect living arts in the open air and cinematographic experimentation”.
It is a “wide and multiple” installation, which implies a theatrical and filmic walk or tour through unknown spaces of the Los Pinos Cultural Complex.
In the pieces of video art, indigenous Santhal actor-dancers participate in which insects, trees, stones, rice fields, seas and skies of those latitudes of West Bengal also appear.
The Indians also do theater can be seen from May 28 to June 6 from 1 to 5 p.m., and in night sessions from 6 to 9 p.m., with free invitation on Saturday May 29, Thursday 3 and Friday 4 of June, for which you have to send an email to email@example.com or call 55 2865-2598.
