“Olinyolotl” Compañía de Danza Folclorica Mexicana, Mexico


The Náhuatl language, spoken by an estimated 1.5 million Mexican indigenous peoples, contains the word “OLINTOTL”, which means “feeling”. This is the title that the group Olinyolotl are using for their latest project, as passion is what the group was created both from and for. These proud performers have secured a growing reputation in the world of Mexican folkloric dances because of the high quality of their work and their emphasis on innovation and original staging. They have been travelling the world to show audiences what makes their rich heritage a unique and beautiful culture, full of traditions, music, color, energy, heart and values. WMDF is proud to bring you this first Mexican collaboration at our tenth anniversary.
