To mark World Water Day (WWD), Teatro Taller Tegucigalpa, together with ONE DROP and Oxfam-Québec, organized the “Water Festival.” Transforming Redondel de los Artesanos—a large square with an impressive fountain in the heart of Tegucigalpa—for the occasion, the artist RIFH (Iván Fiallos) set the tone for the festival by imagining an urban area reigned by unbridled creativity.
In the Honduran capital, 35% of families are not connected to municipal water facilities. They have to wait for the trucks that go up and down their neighbourhood streets to receive water. To show solidarity with these people, twelve artists and groups joined forces to present their artistic creations on the theme of water to the city’s residents.
It’s in this eclectic atmosphere that young and old alike celebrated water on March 22. The artists expressed themselves through a variety of artistic disciplines including theatre, video mapping, juggling, contemporary dance, water drums, living statues, dramatic sculpture, projections, DJing and much more! This colourful event will without a doubt go down in the annals of the capital!
