Morning Gloryville at Wahaca’s Day of the Dead
We are extremely excited to announce a very special collaboration with Wahaca to celebrate the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
* * * IMPORTANT * * *
Day of the Dead is an ancient, indigenous tradition that dates back over 3000 years and has roots in both Aztecs and Mayan tradition and Catholic observance. Whilst strongly identified with Mexico, this two day festival of life and death is celebrated throughout Latin America and everywhere with a Latino population to this day.
Wahaca have carefully programmed a 3 day event that respects and reveres the tradition in a multitude of ways. This is as much a party as it is a learning experience for us all. Latino, Central and South American contributors are integral to the programming of the event.
Morning Gloryville intends for this to be a truly powerful celebration of life and an appreciation and honouring of a tradition that is still practiced and is still evolving. We come with deep respect, and invite you all too.
* * * THANK YOU * * *
We will join Wahaca in the underground labyrinth and immersive theatre venue, The Vaults on the SATURDAY MORNING of their three day subterranean festival of life! 10% of your ticket price will be donated to charities supporting those affected by the recent earthquakes in Mexico.
Lets gather as a community as this magnificent, ancient ritual meets early morning rave, and we dance, pray, commerate and rejoice the lives of those that have passed.
