Puppet Show 2

Puppet Show 2

Inside the performance venue, visitors saw a lone figure onstage for the first performance, "Quenamican (The Place Where, Somehow, Life Goes On)," a one-man act by the puppetry class's instructor, Laurencio Carlos Ruiz. The larger-than-life puppet, created by Ruiz, is known in Aztec mythology as Mictlantecuhtli, the god of earth who ruled over Mictlan, the underworld, with his wife, Mictlancihuatl.
