ITZATNA Arts are an emerging artist collective based in the Midlands that create cross-cultural collaborations with artists & diaspora communities between México, Latin America, and the UK. ITZATNA cultivate intergenerational, decolonial, & ecological approaches to creating art.

Join ITZATNA Arts this May for on a magical journey at A Matter Of Life & Death Festival & Balsall Heath Second Saturday!

‘Stories Of The Wind ‘ is an interactive children’s theatre show inspired by Mexican Day of the Dead with reimaged traditional stories and games about life, death, and rebirth in the animal kingdom. Through playful interaction, these stories and games support how families and adults can engage their young ones to think and talk about the subjects of death, dying, grief, and bereavement, through a renewed appreciation for life, animals, and Planet Earth, through the lens of Mexican culture.

Owl is on a quest to find Coyote in an adventure that transcends borders and defies the boundaries between life and the afterlife. ❤ Together, they embark on a journey to Mictlán to help the souls of the departed reunite with their loved ones.

Are you ready to journey to Mexico and assist Owl and Coyote in their quest?

🌙 Discover the world of 🌟 Alebrijes and the incredible artistry of Pedro Linares, 🦋 Listen to the 🦋 Monarch Butterflies, and meet the Feathered Snake GodQuetzalcoatl, to witness the creation of a celestial symbol on the moon, a tale of kindness, and the interconnectedness of all living beings.

‘Stories Of the Wind’ is written by part of the ‘October Fiesta’ (2023) project may possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England. ‘October Fiesta’ is an original concept created by Outdoor Places Unusual Spaces (OPUS) and commissioned by Twycross Zoo.
