Cada Domingo - Chuy Chacon


We continue our series about the recently held Binational Journey for artists of Mexican ancestry based in the United States by The Mexican Government organization IME (Institute for Mexicans in the Exterior) where they invited 43 artists representing 36 states in the U.S. 

We spend the hour with Chuy Chacon, Artistic Director for Ballet Folklorico de Roy Lozano in Texas. We discuss the challenges of maintaining the historical and traditional accuracy in folkloric Mexican dance due to the living and ever-changing indigenous cultures. 

Chuy was selected among 43 others and attended a conference in Mexico City where they all met with government officials and had a chance to sample some of the amazing artwork and history that Mexico City offers, including over 150 museums, historical sites, and much more.
