Mexico: "The Dances of Polo Garcia, Veracruz" Jay DunnAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Mexico, Veracruz, Oct 27- Nov 4, 2009. For the last twenty-five years, Chicago resident Polo Garcia, a former dance teacher turned folklorist-ethnographer, has gone in search of the cultural traditions of Hispanic America, documenting for future generations indigenous dance movements so ritualized they are often passed on from memory by village elders. Using audio, video and still photography, Garcia spends up to half of each year abroad or in his native Mexico, returning with new material to instruct children as well as teachers in Chicago public schools.
