Mex­i­can Em­bassy cel­e­brates 10th An­niver­sary with Theatre Pro­duc­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Mex­i­can em­bassy on Satur­day evening hosted, free of charge, a the­atri­cal pro­duc­tion of “El El­canto, Ten­da­jon Mixto” by Elana Garro, in com­mem­o­ra­tion of the em­bassy’s tenth year in St. Lu­cia. The venue was the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre and the per­for­mance was open to the public.

Di­rected by Ken­tilia Louis of Youth Study­ing Per­form­ing Arts and Cul­ture (Youth SPAC), the event was co-pro­duced with the em­bassy and por­trayed the sim­i­lar­i­ties be­tween the Mex­i­can and Saint Lu­cian cul­tures.

“Part of the com­pany’s fo­cus is help­ing ex­plore plays and tal­ents from around the re­gion,” Ms Louis told The STAR. “As much as this pro­duc­tion is Mex­i­can, it is also very Saint Lu­cian in its feel.”

Maite Narvaez, an em­bassy of­fi­cial with re­spon­si­bil­ity for co-op­er­a­tion, cul­ture and media, ex­pressed the de­sire to make Saint Lu­cians more knowl­edge­able about Mex­i­can cul­ture.

“They’d be amazed to dis­cover how much alike we are,” she said.

The au­di­ence was treated to some heart-lift­ing pieces on guitar, vi­o­lin and conga drums, as well as some fine act­ing.

Lead­ing ac­tors Miguel Kenswil and Shakira Roberts of YouthSPAC per­form­ing at the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre.
