TONALLI, AZTEC SOUL


We are working on our new project “Tonalli, Aztec Soul”, a dance show about the Mictlan, the underworld of the Mexica culture. Throughout our dance, based on the oriental language, music, and theater, our goal is to introduce this very essential part of the pre-Hispanic Mexica culture, its richness in symbology, and its special vision of death.

The performance will reflect the journey the dead executed in order to free their soul: their “Tonalli”. We will go down this journey alongside the Papantzin princess, whose goal will be to go across the nine Mictlan regions, inhabited by the Aztec gods.

The date of the show is on July 7, 2019 in SAT! Teatre de Barcelona

RAQS SAHIRA ¿WHO ARE WE?


We are an Arabic dance company created and directed by the international dancer and master Gitza Krotzsch. The company’s objective is to offer a rich, wide, and creative vision of dance.

We believe in dance as a medium to express oneself artistically, personally and socially, and beyond entertainment. For this reason, we create thematic shows based in oriental language, and always focused to a social or historical cause.

The name, “Raqs Sahira”, means “magical dance”, as magic is what we feel when dancing.

“I live dance and not just as an artistic expression, but also as a way of communication and individual encounter; learning throughout the body and with the body to feel and manifest from the deepest within myself: the feelings.”

The dancers who are a part of this adventure are: Alba Millanes, Alba Tejada, Alexa Landaverde, Claire Thomas, Cristina Catalán, Erika Di Vittorio, Esther Villa, Gemma Patricio, Kitiara, Irene Membrives, Lara Sánchez, Nuria Moro, Ruth Carralero, Sandra Manzanera, Steffany Medina and Susana Gil.

FOR WHICH PURPOSE WILL WE ALLOCATE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS ?


The money we would obtain thanks to the contribution of our sponsors will be used exclusively to the funding of the show.

Even though our objective is to gather 1 500 €, the company shows historically have a 4 500 € estimate, which are allocated for dressing, set design, video and photography, communication and marketing, rehearsals and theater rent.

We fund our shows mostly with the money collected from the ticket sales. We also organize small events throughout the year to collect funds and have some sponsors at our disposal. However, these sources of incomes are not enough.

This is why we decided to throw a verkami campaign: to guarantee the funding at 100% for the show.

Show: Sab
Show: Sab'ah, 2016.

EXPECTED CALENDAR


The show, “Tonalli, Aztec Soul” (Tonalli, alma azteca), will take place on Sunday 7 July at 7 p.m. in SAT! teatre de Barcelona (Neopàtria, 54). We will send your tickets via email.

You will be able to assist to one of the programmed rehearsals before the day of the show (consult details in the Rewards section): 11, 16, 18, 25, and 30 June, or 2 and 6 July.

The workshops with the Sahiras will take place along the months of July and September (consult details in the Rewards section).

The DVDs (in spanish) and the photos will be sent as soon as your editing is complete. The photos will very likely be sent along July, and the DVDs in September.

#06 / No es un adiós... Es un ¡hasta luego!

La campaña de Verkami ha llegado a su fin y no podemos estar más agradecid@s con todos vosotr@s, queridos mecenas: no sólo hemos llegado a nuestra meta sino que hemos superado las expectativas. Ya es un hecho: "Tonalli, Alma Azteca" verá la luz el próximo 7 de Julio 2019 en el SAT de Barcelona.

En breve os contactaremos personalmente para informaros de cómo y cuándo podréis disfrutar de vuestras recompensas. No olvidéis rellenar el formulario con los detalles necesarios según el tipo de recompensa.

Ahora sólo nos queda seguir ensayando y preparando ese gran día en el que seréis testigos de nuestra dedicación en cuerpo y alma a la danza y al arte.

Aquí puedes ver unas palabras de nuestra directora y de toda la compañía Raqs Sahira.

De nuevo: ¡GRACIAS!

#05 / ¿Qué es el Tonalli?

Durante la época prehispánica, el tonal, totonal o tonalli era otorgado a los individuos al nacer por los dioses Ometecuhtli y Omecíhuatl, pero se fijaba en el individuo y adquiría sus particularidades al realizarse la ceremonia de bautizo indígena, unos cuantos días después del parto. Así, se consideraba que el Tonalli es distinto en cada persona, y puede ser débil o fuerte, en función del día del nacimiento y del ambiente posterior a los siguientes días del parto.

Los médicos prehispánicos consideraban que el Tonalli era una de las tres entidades anímicas alojadas dentro del soma, junto con el Teyolia y el Ihiyotl. El funcionamiento armónico de las tres entidades daba por resultado "un individuo sano”, equilibrado mentalmente y de recta moral.

El Tonalli refería al calor solar, al signo de la luz y el día, y aun cuando su… read more

#04 / Ensayos Sahira, ¡¡imágenes inéditas!!

Aquí os traemos un vídeo inédito con las cosas que podréis ver el día 7 de Julio.
Ya queda solo un mes y los ensayos están siendo muy intensos para que todo quede perfecto.
Empezamos con dinámicas de grupo para calentar y para trabajar a los personajes que representamos, repasamos todas las dudas que se puedan tener (!son muchas coreografías¡)y ya con plena concentración pasamos todo el espectáculo para memorizarlo y adaptarnos a los tiempos entre coreografías, donde tenemos que cambiarnos de vestuario y preparar los elementos que van a salir a escena.
Aquí os dejamos el vídeo, hecho para vosotros, esperamos que os guste.

P.d.: Sobre la última imagen que se ve del vídeo... sí, sí, es lo que parece.

#03 / La flor de cempasúchil en la cultura mexica

La flor de cempasúchil (“cempoaxóchitl” en náhuatl) es conocida como la flor de los 20 pétalos, y se cree que su uso en los altares de Día de Muertos es una herencia de los rituales prehispánicos que se realizaban en el pueblo de Malinalco, Estado de México.

En esta región, cuando una persona moría, los familiares adornaban sus tumbas con ramos de tonalxóchitl, flores amarillas de diminuto tamaño que, según las creencias, guardaba en su centro el calor brindado por los rayos del sol.

Los aztecas al ver este ritual, comenzaron adecorar sus ofrendas con flores de cempasúchil (más grande y llamativa), pues era considerada como un símbolo de vida y muerte.

En un espectáculo no sólo es importante la interpretación, la danza y la música, sino también el vestuario y la escenografía es por esta razón que… read more

#02 / Seguimos con los ensayos!

Llevamos ya varios meses ensayando para nuestro nuevo espectáculo Tonalli, alma Azteca. Empieza la cuenta atrás y ahora más que nunca es cuando toca apretar. Además de todos los martes, ensayamos también uno o dos fines de semana al mes para garantizar que el espectáculo salga perfecto!

El ensayo del pasado domingo fue muy provechoso. No sólo nos dedicamos a repasar y perfeccionar las coreografías del espectáculo, sino que también realizamos dinámicas de teatro e interpretación para meternos más en los personajes del show, y también empezamos con las pruebas de vestuario.

Curiosidad por saber cómo son nuestro ensayos? Te dejamos algunas fotos para que te hagas una idea. Recuerda también, que una de las recompensas que ofrecemos en nuestro verkami es el “Ensaya con nosotras!”. Podrás asistir a uno de nuestros ensayos y vivir en primera persona lo que implica montar un espectáculo como Tonalli!

La sincronización de las bailarinas es clave para un buen espectáculo. Hay que repetir muchas veces todas las coreografías y corregir los errores o diferencias, por pequeños que sean..

Representación de las etapas de la travesía al Mictlán
Representación de las etapas de la travesía al Mictlán

Hoy queremos introduciros la temática de nuestra pieza de danza teatro!

La muerte, al ser la gran desconocida de los seres humanos, ha sido siempre interpretada en función del tiempo histórico y el lugar, fruto de la cosmovisión de las diferentes culturas, su modelo de vida y valores. Los aztecas, antiguos habitantes de la región de Mesoamèrica,eran una cultura fuertemente basada en la guerra y la superación. Dichos valores se ven representados en su interpretación de la muerte. En la cual se viajaba a distintos lugares del inframundo en función de la causa de la muerte. El lugar que representaremos en nuestra obra "Tonalli, alma azteca" es el Mictlàn, el lugar donde se dirigen las personas que murieron por causas naturales.

Después de morir, las… read more
