A folk tour across regions on one stage

A troupe of 125 dancers will be performing traditional dances representing more than one region of Panama in the show called "Nuances of my land."

This event, presented by the group Projections, Rhythms, and Traditions and with the support of the National Institute of Culture, will be held at the National Theater this weekend.

The functions will be at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 27 and 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 28.


The audience will enjoy an overview of the traditional music and dances that identify many parts of the country, previewed Gino Herrera, director of the Projections, Rhythms, and Traditions group.

They will have the opportunity to admire the showy choreography of such dances as "El Atravesao", "La Cumbia Santeña", and "El Punto", highlighted Herrera, who has over 25 years of experience in the field of folklore.

For Herrera, bringing folklore to the stage is a way to give worth to the talent in the isthmus, as well as fulfill a commitment to the public to showcase the national folk dances.

"The audience only sees the end result, but it is an arduous task and you can not imagine the logistics and all that is entailed in putting on a show like this," she expressed.

The music of this production is under the direction of Jorge Quiel.

Yurian Herrera leads Projections, Rhythms, and Traditions as their queen for 2013.

This young lady has been a member of the artistic collective for five years, a period that for her has represented "friendship, commitment, learning, and pride."

She has found a second family in this group, which shares her same love for traditions and folklore, commented Yurian Herrera.

Accompanying Yurian will be Fiorela Rovira as Child Princess, Estefanía Yanis as Preadolescent Queen, and the Youth Princess Anaissa González, indicated Gino Herrera.


For 28 years the Projections, Rhythms, and Traditions group members have represented Panama on international stages in countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and Chile.

This collective is currently divided into three segments: child, youth, and adult.

If you want to see these 125 dancers in action, ticket prices are for $5, $12, and $15 and can be purchased at the National Theatre box office on the day of the event.
