INTRO - (Sebas & Alfredo talking to camera)

Both: Hello there! Hola! Ba’ax ka wa’alik?

S: I’m Sebas Hau! I’m a Live Artist, producer and theatre-maker...

A: And I’m Alfredo Hau! I’m a visual artist, poet and professional chef...

S: - and together we founded Colectivo ITZATNA, an emerging artist collective that aims to create opportunities for creative intercultural collaborations between Mexico, Latin America, and the UK.

A - We’re launching this crowdfunder to raise money for our first collective project called Hanal Pixan: Food For All Souls; an immersive dining event inspired by the unique Day of the Dead traditions from our ancestral homeland, the Yucatan Mayan peninsular of southern Mexico

MAIN BODY - (Voiceovers with found footage/archive clips)

A: [Alfredo talks about Hanal Pixan traditions and memories]

S: We want this performance to include live cooking, shared meals, ritual actions, light audience participation with communal altar building, and audio-visual immersion like soundscapes and video projections. Overall, we want to create an unforgettable, multimedia, multisensory experience, that invites you, the audience, to reflect and digest on themes of life and death, eating and consuming, indigenous land resistance, and coming climate change - in relation to how the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is affecting the UK & Mexico...

A: But this project simply can’t happen without your support… We’re asking for your help to raise just £600 to support our first collective project. All of your generous donations will be used to fund the core production cost of our project, like set design, costumes, props, space hire and more, so we can bring the live experience to venues in Birmingham and London, where you’ll have a chance to be part of this unique celebration of life and death, - and taste a delicious menu designed, prepared, an cooked fresh by me and the collective!

S: And every donation receives a special reward, a little gift from us to you to thank you for your generosity and support for helping us make this dream project come to life!
