Description


Both the practical and logistical aspects of producing a piece of theatre and the historical and social evolution of theater are given thorough treatment in this introduction to, and explanation of, the tradition of the Mexican pastorela. The descendant of a theatrical tradition that dates back to rituals of sacrament and religious offering in medieval Spain, the traditional pastorela focuses on the conflict between good and evil as experienced by the shepherds on their journey to witness the birth of Jesus. Cualquier amante de la pastorela puede ayudar a montar, actuar y dirigir una con esta guía de los aspectos prácticos e históricos de este estilo teatral. La pastorela mexicana—heredera de una larga tradición que se remonta a los añejos rituales de los autos sacramentales del teatro religioso medieval español—se coge fuerte del brazo de la vida con una espontaneidad y riqueza plástica de imágenes que resulta asombrosa.
