  2. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Ehécatl An original puppet theatre production based on an Aztec legend. Ajijic, Jalisco – April, 2017 – Ehécatl An original puppet theatre production based on an Aztec legend comes to Ajijic, Mexico in April, 2017. Come enjoy the exclusive, world premiere of a most eclectic and creative production. Art Xik Xik and the Teatro CoyolliIzel present Ehécatl, an original puppet theatre production based on an Aztec legend on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in a lovely, private chapel in upper Ajijic, Mexico. The presentation is a fundraiser for Butterflies en Mexico (BEM), A.C. BEM is a local, not-for-profit charity that empowers youth to make healthy life choices. www.gomariposa.org. BEM does this in 3 ways through its programs: anti-violence education in the Chapala public schools, community development in our neighborhoods and through vocational training projects that assist local youth in obtaining cost of living wages and employment. On April 22nd, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. our lovely residential chapel will be transformed into a formal puppet theatre. Our afternoon starts at 5 p.m. with valet parking, wine bar and catered appetizers. At 6 p.m. our exclusive group of guests will take their seats to experience the world premiere presentation of Ehécatl. In the Aztec legend of the god of wind, Ehécatl appears on the breath of all living beings and in the breezes that bring the rain clouds for the crops. His breath initiates the movement of the sun, announces and moves the rain and brings life to that which is still. Based on an Aztec legend, using original, pre-hispanic style puppets, Ehécatl the god of wind, falls in love with a human named Mayáhuel. Mayáhuel was human at a time when people still could not love one another. Ehécatl gave all humanity the ability to love so that Mayáhuel could respond to the passion of the gods and reciprocate his love. Book by Izel Paz Villegas, Fabiola Paz Villegas and Fco. Nava. © 2017. Direction by Abril Iñiguez. This evening of magic and culture should not be missed!

  4. Monday, October 3, 2016 GRUPO AXIXIC MICHICIHUALLI Would you like to be part of a group that improves the beauty of our town? Our Children’s Art Beautification Project (CABP) consists of an art competition to be held in the primary and secondary schools of the area, allowing for the youth of our town to create artwork that will appear on public street posts (phone, electric, sign, etc.) Entry to the contest is free and the paint materials will be provided. The winning prizes consist of trips to the Guadalajara Zoo, a Guadalajara museum visit, a trip to Mazamitla or to the Guachimontones ruin site. The project is part of Grupo Axixic Michicihualli (see FaceBook page or http://grupoaxixicmichicihualli.blogspot.mx for more info). We have confirmed participation of the first 3 schools in our area. Thank you to the directors of these 3 schools. This coming week we will be visiting the participating schools, explaining the details of the project, inviting the children to participate. No youth will be turned away if they want to participate. The actual painting starts in a week and a half from the posting date of this communique. The selections of the winning entries will be done by a group of judges consisting of local artists, ex-pats and local children. Once again, we’d like to state that we are not affiliated with any political party, religious association or with any other movement with profit focus. Look for upcoming news soon on our FaceBook page or at http://grupoaxixicmichicihualli.blogspot.mx/ Thank you, Your Friends at Grupo Axixic Michicihualli. Te gustaría ser parte de las personas que cambiemos la imagen visual de nuestro pueblo? Nuestro proyecto consiste en colorear y dar vida a nuestra población, por lo que consideramos que una retocada visual no estaría de más y darle un toque alegre y pintoresco a Ajijic. Las fotos son algunos ejemplos, el tema es libre, el premio un viaje a: El zoológico, un museo, mazamitla, o guachimontones. Cuando? Pasaríamos a las escuelas para hacer una invitación más formal y despejar dudas. Esta semana se estarán visitando las escuelas e invitando a los niños a participar. La idea va dirigida a nuestros niños, aunque nuestra política no es cerrada quedaría abierto para toda persona que desee participar. Muy pronto tendrán noticias y podremos poner nuestro pueblo a una altura estética impresionante y todo con el talento de nuestros niños. Los materiales serán gratis, solo ocupan hacer equipos de 3 o 4 integrantes. Sólo por informar que ya nos confirmaron su participación las 3 primarias existentes en nuestra población. Con esto queda confirmada la participación de los turnos matutinos de dichos planteles, la invitación formal será el próximo martes para intercambiar ideas o despejar dudas en dichas escuelas. Gracias al director y las directoras de dichos planteles y por colaborar y enaltecer los valores de nuestra gente. Esto es una motivación más para los niños y una satisfacción para nosotros los adultos. Muy pronto (semana y media para ser exactos) arrancaremos con la pinta masiva de postes donde quedarán plasmadas las ideas e imaginación de nuestros niños. Los jueces serán artistas reconocidos de aquí incluyendo a extranjeros y niños. También recalcar que dicho evento no es de ninguna asociación religiosa, política, o de otra índole. Tampoco se están usando los niños para otro objetivo que no sea embellecer nuestro pueblo. Cualquier declaración, adjudicación, o foto tomada para otros fines la desconoceremos. Toda la información y seguimiento del evento será a través de nuestra página en Facebook. No tenemos portavoces o mensajeros. Estas publicaciones se harán en inglés y aparecerán en Chapala.com y en un blog hecho especialmente para la comunidad extranjera http://grupoaxixicmichicihualli.blogspot.mx Las fotos que se tomen seran meramente informativas e ilustrativas no tenemos protagonistas o representantes. En nuestra misma página aparecen los integrantes de este grupo, de ahí en adelante ignoraremos cualquier comentario desafortunado que se llegara a sucitar en el proceso de dicha actividad. Aclarado esto, empezaremos la próxima semana. Gracias y un saludo de sus amigos de GRUPO AXIXIC MICHICIHUALLI.
