The Folkloric Children’s Ballet of the University of Guadalajara presents the show in which the magic of Sinaloa, Oaxaca, Veracruz, and Jalisco will envelop the Santander Performing Arts Group

The Folkloric Children’s Ballet of the University of Guadalajara will present the show “Carnivals of Mexico”, which will be the magic represented by entities such as Sinaloa, Oaxaca, Veracruz, and Jalisco. The appointment is this Sunday, July 7 at 6:00 pm in the Sala Plácido Domingo of the Conjunto Santander de Performing Arts, where there will be live music and 160 small ones on stage, according to the director of the company, David Jiménez.

“This Ballet Folclórico Infantil of the University of Guadalajara is already 40 years old and I have been directing it for more than 20 years. And we have created a context of presentations doing a research work, because before we did the repertoire that the program had and after two or three years we started doing research to be able to make a different presentation every year, and we have handled it, depending on dates and celebrations, “shares David as a context for the public to realize the importance of the company.

” In this year we presented ‘Carnivals of Mexico’ because carnival is a very typical festival not only of Mexico, of the whole world, and depending on the country, the region and the State, it is the way in which it is developed. Then, we took the most representative states in terms of carnivals is concerned, because they have been the most developed by its architectural and cultural environment as Veracruz and Sinaloa, which has a port, boardwalk, and allegorical cars.

From Sinaloa to Oaxaca

In the first part of the show Mazatlan, Sinaloa will be represented, then Oaxaca comes, from where they chose the Putleco Carnival, a comparsa with mascaritas, male and female dance from Villa Guerrero. In the middle of the show comes Veracruz, one of the most festive entities in terms of carnivals: “Carnival is a word that means partying and many other things, but as we have distorted that word for the carnivals that are in Rio (Brazil) , where there is a lot of pen and little clothes, and if you ask people, they have only this idea. But the carnivals are like the ‘mitotes’ that were called in Jalisco . 

The closing of the show on Sunday occurs with the representation of the Jalisco entity through a research paper called “Do not get old leather that I want to drum,” piece that celebrates the carnival of Los Altos de Jalisco. “We took a very nice thing called ‘the papaquis’, with old mariachi and dancers. The story goes that they went house to house playing the biggest tendejones or those who had more economy in the town and asked for help, they played for a while and gave them food. So, we take this context and with the old mariachi we will enter the stage and say some verses that were proclaimed at that time. We manage four or five houses so that the program is not so long. “

This presentation is the graduation of this generation of children that was preparing throughout the year. The director details that each new cycle auditions are made so that more children are developing in the folk dance.
