Kalpulli Yaocenotxli,
Radical Playground Opening Performance

For more Northern Spark 2019 images, visit our flickr album here. Watch our videos here: Northern Spark 2019.

The opening performance will begin with a blessing and procession by Kalpulli Yaocenotxli. The procession will transition from the Northern Spark AFTA reception tents to the Radical Playground installation with an opening dance ceremony.

The performance will include at least three commissioned alebrije puppet outfits by artists in Oaxaca, who are also crafting our “make-and-take” alebrijes by various artists in Oaxaca for Radical Playground at Northern Spark. Music will be provided by Indigo Crew. There will also be a #MMIW (Murdered & Missing Indigenous Women) stamping activity led by Gracie Horne.

Kalpulli Yaocenoxtli is a traditional Mexica-Aztec dance and drum group founded in 2006, led by Sergio Cenoch and Mary Anne Quiroz.
