The Head of Government, Martí Batres Guadarrama, presented the audiovisual show “The Mayan People and Felipe Carrillo Puerto. Luminous Memory II” in commemoration of the centenary of the death of Felipe Carrillo Puerto. This event will offer three free daily performances in the Zócalo of Mexico City from July 12 to 21, at 8:00 p.m., 8:45 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. With a duration of 25 minutes, the show will use 360-degree audio and video technology, presenting 2D and 3D animations on a 15-meter-high replica of the Pyramid of Kukulcán.

The show will narrate the most significant moments in the life of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, highlighting his participation with the Zapatistas and his execution in 1924. “Felipe Carrillo Puerto developed in the environment of the Mexican Revolution, along with him there are many other revolutionaries, but he has something that characterized him from that time and that gave him a special aura over time and that was his definition,” said Batres.

From the Mexico City Museum, Batres stressed the importance of spreading the word about Carrillo Puerto’s life and work among the younger generations, emphasizing his role in the fight for workers’ rights and his organization of the Socialist Party in southeastern Mexico.

Rescuing Historical Memory

Batres highlighted the economic growth and major projects in the southeastern region of the country during the current administration, such as the Mayan Train and the Dos Bocas Refinery. These projects, according to the president, have also driven a spectacular archaeological rescue, discovering and preserving important vestiges of the Mayan civilization.

The event will feature the participation of more than 200 people, including entertainers, dancers, musicians, actors, carpenters, blacksmiths and painters. Through the show, attendees will learn about ancient Mayan myths, narrated in the sacred books of the Popol Vuh and the Chilam Balam, as well as the most significant advances of this civilization in science and culture. The general director of Grandes Festivales Comunitarios, Argel Gómez Concheiro, highlighted the importance of the tribute to the socialist leader and to the indigenous people who carried out a transformative work in Yucatán.

Participation of Renowned Artists and Studios

The production includes the contemporary dance company “La Infinita Compañía”, directed by Raúl Tamez and Rodrigo González. It is also based on research by historians and archaeologists, and features the participation of artists and collectives such as Carlos Báez, Maizz Visual and Animadores Mexicanos. In addition, Juan Pablo Villa and the Coro Acardenchado recorded a new version of the Hymn to Carrillo Puerto, composed by Rubén Darío Herrera and written by Edmundo Bolio.

“The Government of Mexico City pays tribute to the socialist leader and to the indigenous people who, organized in the resistance leagues, carried out a transformative work in Yucatan. We trust that thanks to the spectacle of luminous memory, more Mexicans will share the pride for the greatness of the Mayan civilization and the living heritage that currently lives in the indigenous peoples,” concluded Gómez Concheiro.

The event promises to be not only a great audiovisual and dance show, but also a profound educational and cultural experience, fostering knowledge and pride in the rich history and legacy of the Mayan civilization and the impact of Felipe Carrillo Puerto in the fight for social justice in Mexico.
