Abstract

HENRIQUEZ PUENTES, Patricia. TEATRO MAYA: RABINAL ACHÍ O DANZA DEL TUN. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2007, n.70, pp.79-108. ISSN 0718-2295.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22952007000100004.

The Rabinal Achí or Dance of the Tun is theatre of Mayan origen. The first performances date from the 13th century and continue into the present day in contemporary Guatemala. It is a composition that forms part of the religious scheme of the Indo-American cultures and, preserved through oral tradition up until the 19th century, has been rewritten in this scenic space for approximately eight hundred years. The Rabinal Achí reveals a way of writing with the body that articulates dance, music and poetry and represents a moment in the history of theatre in which the art of representation and the ritual share the same scene

Keywords : Theatre; dance; ritual; flowery speech; restoration.
