The Rehearsal/El Ensayo: Peter & the Wolf

| Leave a comment

This video goes behind the scenes, a youth orchestra teams up with a student dance company to create a version of Peter and the Wolf. In these videos for the TV series Pasion por las Artes I´m finding its much more interesting to take a look at the process rather than just document a performance or a gallery show. Interestingly, and coincidentally, the 2 maestros here come from the same school of the arts in Havana, Cuba, where for the time of their education, roughly the 1970´s and 1980´s, some of the best worldwide performing artists trained.

This show at the Manuel Felguerez museum provides an overview of new and not so new artists out of the state of Jalisco, Mexico.  What is incredible about the state of Zacatecas MX is the wealth of support and energy in the visual arts, well incredible to somebody like me from the US.  Here in these episodes we will look at this work being done and being exhibited here in this region, I encourage you all to come and enjoy.
