CompARTE Festival Closes

 

comparteCompARTE, Oventik Caracol, July 29, 2016

 

In a communiqué on July 26, the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) announced that something will always be presented “in different calendars and geographies, something of artistic creation that the Zapatistas prepare to show you” in all of the Zapatista Caracoles. Since July, the EZLN reported to have registered 1,127 national artists and 318 from other countries; as well as 1,819 Zapatista artists and 1,566 ‘eyes and ears’ (escuchas-videntes) from the Zapatista support bases for the CompARTE Festival. The event was partially cancelled when they opted to give all the supplies collected for the festival to the striking teachers, before being re-scheduled under a different format.

After an inauguration in CIDECI-Unitierra, in San Cristobal de Las Casas, CompARTE moved on through the Caracoles of Oventik, La Realidad, La Garrucha, Morelia, and Roberto Barrios between July 29 and August 12, coinciding in Morelia with the 13th anniversary of the foundation of the Zapatista Caracoles. The Zapatistas shared their path from the 70s to the present with us through theatre, poetry, music, paintings, and photos.
