Dancing Elotes

Presented by Carolyn Lewenberg/Veronica Robles
Farmers MArket, at Lewis Mall (behind Maverick T Station)

Pop up Elotes Cart celebration and sculpture/dance workshops

Dancing Elotes is a tribute to life and joyful youthful spirits. This project will include a bike-cart selling elotes, traditionally prepared corn served on the street in Mexico, as a literal and conceptual vehicle for cross-cultural culinary, dance and sculptural experiences at the East Boston Farmers Market. Dancing Elotes will culminate in a large-scale sculpture of traditional Latino dancers made out of the Elote husks and cobs, and dancers performing “La Danza del Permiso” (to request permission from mother earth to work the soil) around an altar at the base of sculptures to celebrate the Day of the Dead, and to honor the lives of the young victims of street violence.

Artists: Veronica Robles and Carolyn Lewenberg.
