LOS COSMICOMICOS ….El Secreto … A traves de los vasos

This video is the primiere of El Secreto, at the October 2013 International Street Theatre Festival in Zacatecas, Mexico.

Unlike last year´s large scale work La Princesa de los Vientos, in this project the audience is not fixed, they follow the action across a large triangular shaped plaza.  In the video here Detras del Escenario the participants describe the process.  Highlights are the great mobile pirate ship, the antique underwater look of the musicians, and the friends of Lucia descending from a tall smokestack in harnesses into the staging area.  Luckily for me here no translation necessary as its visual and sound images. Enjoy!

El Secreto. Detras del Escenario

Los Cosmicomicos are a theatre group, now together 10 years – you can see some of their previous works on this site like Princesa de los Vientos (2012) and Los Colmillos del Oeste (2011).  In this video we interview Director Sergio Salinas, Dramaturge Paola Reyes, Production Director Juan Chavez, Costume Designer Susana Salinas, Set Designer Sandra Santiago and Musician/Arranger Jesus Sanchez – and we take a look at rehearsal footage shot in the Palacio de Convenciones of Zacatecas, obviously for a piece this huge you need a big space.

Los Cosmicomicos have now been together about 10 years, growing out of a street theatre and improvisation base into larger and more complex pieces.  This year they toured Venezuela, an upcoming Colombia tour is in the works, and as Juan says here each step involves more contacts and further challenges – for instance for some of the pirates featured here its their first time in front of a crowd of several thousand, so the nerves are up.  For the music, composed and principally performed by David Duron & Jesus Sanchez, the University of Zacatecas Symphony recorded tracks and performed live.  So its bigger and better all the time…

The masks in the central scene are designed and fabricated out of resin by Mexico City/Zacatecas sculptor Hugo Calderon.

For you English speakers I promise subtitles when I get caught up!  In any case, the upcoming video of the primiere of The Secret needs no translation – its pure large scale visual and audio imagery.

Nuevo, para el Festival Internacional de Teatro de Calle de Zacatecas, 2013  – “EL SECRETO”.   Los Cosmis han crecido muchos, este año fueron a Venezuela … El Secreto tiene musica de David Doron tocodo en viva con su grupo y con pistas grabados por  la Orquesta Sinfonica Juvenil de Zacatecas!  Con 8 años de trayectoria, los Cosmicomicos siguen creciendo …. PASION por las ARTES graba 2 episodios:  detras del escenario con los musicos, el director, los artistas y ensayando, y el evento en Plaza Bicentenario Zacatecas.

People travelling to Mexico should try to experience the annual International Street Theatre Festival in Zacatecas, mid-October to take advantage of sharing resources with Guanajuato´s great Cervantino Festival.  Featuring companies from Europe, North and South America and regional Mexican groups its a great way to experience theatre – and if you don´t understand Spanish, no problem.  This language is large and visual, outdoors featuring the beautiful spaces of Zacatecas.  It has also become for groups like Cosmicomicos a great way to connect with artists from other regions, forge alliances and begin to participate on the international stages.

Here on mexitv.com you can see a variety of works over the past few years of the Cosmis.  They rotate positions, cover big creative territory and manage to stay together happily adding elements, now touring alot, really a delightful group

The Princess of the Winds: Behind the Scenes

| Comments Off on The Princess of the Winds: Behind the Scenes

For the Zacatecas, MX International Street Theatre Festival 2012, the Cosmicomicos developed this large acrobatic piece Princess of the Winds, a fairy tale.  They were contracted to present in the largest, most important space – the Plaza de Armas or central plaza of the city, and decided to develop an original work featuring aerial dance, gymnasts and a score of live music with comic-book style costumed characters.

In this video we interview the director, production manager, composer & costume designer as well as some of the players, and then show clips from rehearsal and opening night.
