SYNOPSIS

Dances of the Wanka Willka Folkloric Group, formed by a family of three generations of scissors dancers, are showed in this production.

After many years travelling around the world, Gabriel “Lucifer“ Hilario Huamanyalli returned to Rantay, a little village where he born, in the heart of Huancavelica, in Peruvian Andes.

Scissors dance is a traditional Peruvian manifestation, older than Spanish colonization. In the Colonial and Independence times, this artistic expression was censored because it was considered pagan for the inhuman acrobatics of their dancers.
