This video is an edited version of the play that we created during a 4 week long workshop last December and early January (2011) which took place in Jalpan de Serra, located in the province of Queretaro, Mexico. We had 4 Finnish participants and so we integrated a folkloric character called the Nutti Pukki who appears only at this time of year. We adapted the traditional story of the Slaughter of the Innocents to bring forth current environmental and ecological issues that were of concern to our group.
This project was produced by Dragon Dance Theatre, directed by Sam Kerson. Thanks to Junipero Cabrera Berrones of the Museo Historico de la Sierra Gorda.
