Interactive Experience - ANCESTRAL DANCEBEAT/LATIDO DE DANZA ANCESTRAL -Mexico.
‘The video artwork is a sensory experience where the heart beats at the rhythm of the drums (Huehuetl) with the sound of the rattles (Ayacastli) made by every movement of the dancers. Experience ‘The Signature’, which precedes and finishes every dance, a form of asking permission, to offer gratitude. The movements represent Fire, Air, Water and Earth. ANCESTRAL DANCEBEAT connects us with life and its cycles and the power of the Universe through Mexihca Dance (Pre-Hispanic), Concheros Dance (Hispanic Syncretism), Moon Dance and Sun Dance events. Expressions of 'Mexicanidad' through Dance which connects with the wisdom of the elders, oral tradition and spiritual meaning, body and movement, heart and mind, essence and strength in harmony with MOTHER EARTH, the Cosmos, the four directions and the four elements”.
