About this Event

TZAQIK | a tale, of many" is an original multi-media performance written by Jesús López, one of K.B. Theatre's founding members. Inspired by the Mayan myth of Xb’alanque, the moon twin-god from the “Popol Vuh”, we are presented with the story of a gentle deity doomed to watch the miseries, tragedies and laments of humankind, in an effort to find a cure for sadness. Tzaqik is a contemporary mystical performance inspired by and dedicated to the many who fight for a better tomorrow, to the many seeking the light. Rooted on various cultures from around the world and their many myths and stories, Tzaqik aims to thrill and captivate its audiences by integrating multilingual verse, original music and stylized movement, along with intermedial visual designs in order to compose an unforgettable live experience.

Tzaqik tells and represents the tragedies, but most importantly the triumphs, of many different groups of marginalized peoples around the world. This project is currently offering professional-level opportunities to 39 young visual artists, linguists, performers, writers, music composers, designers, developers, technicians & project managers and we are one of the first performance groups in the nation to truly casts their performers regardless of each individuals' cultural or gender identities, taking a strong and proud stand for inclusion.
