Apolatl is an art project that relates textile, soundscapes & stageplay.
Apolatl represents an autonomous space and advocates the emergence of young visual art. The project affirms a métis lifestyle and melts cultures, traditions and innovative creations. Creating an Apolatl is producing an action which will be remembered, kept and owned by the public.
For each play, the costumes and props are conceived in limited series to create an adaptable and original textile collection. From the handcrafted primary materials arise contemporary textile designs that enhance a minimalist and practical design vision, prioritizing an object utilitarian and ludic.
