Woven from ancestral myths, traditional music, and a three-person narrative, ANDARES reveals the extraordinary spirit of México’s most remote corners and the astonishing pathways of their humblest of inhabitants. The play shines a light on a range of realities - land usurpation, widespread violence, community resistance - which indigenous people continue to face at the crossroads of old and new ways of life. Created by Héctor Flores Komatsu in a year-long search across the original cultures of his homeland, ANDARES is both a deeply touching and fierce denunciation against a present that seems intent upon destroying what was once held as sacred.

See it if you want a lovely experience like a vacation without the inconvenience of luggage. Delightful performance exposing a Mexico I never knew.
