In the Bright Existence (1976 / 2nd Production): Back Cover / Overview

Image provided by Sears Eldredge. Sears writes:

"This production was an original adaptation of the Quiche Maya Book of Counsel as translated by Munro S. Edmundson of Tulane University and the Mesoamerican Institute into a performance text. His translation, used with his permission, used his special recording of the Quiche Maya words / phrases I wanted to use as part of the performance text.

Traditional and original music was performed by the students. Costumes and masks were based on archeological and traditional sources reflecting various ancient Mesoamerican cultures.

The second production of this piece performed two years later was JMC’s contribution to the University’s Bi-centennial Celebration highlighting the fact that there were other peoples with cultures severely damaged by the arrival of Europeans who should not be forgotten about.
