Teoquiyaoatl (Sacred Portal)

As the artist fellow for The Looking for America project, Assistant professor, Angel Cabrales created an installation/performance piece in collaboration with the UTEP Dance. 

This is a new extension of the Uncolonized Exhibition (which is currently on exhibit at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum in Mesa, AZ until August 8th) and it continues its mission to instill a curiosity into the untaught histories of our Meso-American heritage through the science fiction motif of the Uncolonized Universe. 

With the goal to nurture the dignity in one’s ethnic heritage, creating thought, generating conversation and discussion to forge a strong sense of honor in who we are as a people. 

Teoquiyaoatl (sacred portal) is a one-day event and will be at the UGLC/ Centennial Museum shared plaza on May 27th at 7pm. 

Sculpture and Costumes by Angel Cabrales, Choreography by Melissa Melpignano, Music by Henry Van, dance by Chris Delgado (Olmechemist), Melissa Melpignano (Zapoteknikal Engineer), Jennifer Morales (Mayathmatician), and Jensen Springer (Aztechnonaut).
