Masks, dancers, music and prose of Mayan culture in El Popul Vuh at LSUS Theater, Sat, Nov 10. 7 pm

Voces Castellanas, an organization of Iberoamerican women, is presenting its second theatrical production at LSUS under the direction of Ana Alba. The LSUS Spanish Club and Fine Arts Department will sponsor the event, which is free and open to the public.

It will be held at the LSUS University Center Theater Sat, Nov 10, at 7:00 p.m.

The spectacular presentation in music, dance and prose recitation entitled “El Popul Vuh" will recount the story of Creation as imparted in the Mayan culture. Four dancers will represent the creative gods, an indigenous “grandmother” will pass on the oral tradition to the youth and a modified “Greek-style” choir will perform.

Elaborate masks and shields for the dancers have been created under the direction of artist Kelly McDade, art instructor at Bossier Parish Community College, and Zarco Guerrero, who recently visited Shreveport under the auspices of the Shreveport Regional Art Council.
