'The combination of movement, acting and puppetry was magical' – FFWD Magazine
A RITUAL OF MIRACLES
Through tales and mythology, MACULA narrates a journey of Pre-Hispanic legends.
The members of the company based their research on the polemic figures found inside the eyes of the Virgin of Guadalupe and the religious icon's relation to the Mexican goddess Tonantzin. MACULA explored the deep cultural and symbolic roots associated with the timeless veneration of the mother figure.
Using ritualistic poetry and movement, MACULA tells the story of an earthly goddess who gives birth to a winged creature. Separated shortly after, he is given the task to look for elements to create a majestic cloak made of petals.
In his path, he discovers a fantastical world that represents the deep connection between mother and son.
