The 4th annu­al fes­ti­val of alter­na­tive arts (Fes­ti­val Sigu­ien­tesce­na 2011) in town did not dis­ap­point last week. Con­sist­ing of “uncon­ven­tion­al the­ater, dance, and cir­cus” per­for­mances, the gen­er­al qual­i­ty of the tal­ent was extreme­ly high. Full of great music, dance, and peo­ple doing gen­er­al­ly crazy things with their bod­ies, these types of per­for­mances are some of my favorite types. I went 3 evenings and found myself just want­i­ng to run away and join the cir­cus, or at least quit my day job (so-to-speak) and fol­low the cir­cus as a pho­tog­ra­ph­er.

My apolo­gies to any­one I mis­la­beled or was not able to iden­ti­fy. I wel­come cor­rec­tions and addi­tions. To find out more about all of the per­form­ers, there is a decent web­site for the fes­ti­val at: http://fiaaeq.blogspot.com/
It seems to sur­vive year-to-year. No promis­es though about the per­sis­tence of the infor­ma­tion.
