Artist Development Bursary – AJAYU TRANSITORIO
AJAYU TRANSITORIO (Transient Soul, working title) is a performance/installation that explores the traditions, relationships with food, death and dying through the magic of Latin American traditional rituals and cultural practices. In Bolivia, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a celebration of the eternal, providing one day a year for the living to be reunited with the departed
