This video Predator Dance is an excerpt from Vía Cruxis (Stations of the Cross) which follows the path Jesus took in Jerusalem to be crucified. In Mexico, as in all other Christian based societies, Good Friday is a day of organized penitence and mourning for Christ’s death but a very different tradition has emerged in Carrillo Puerto, an isolated village in the mountains of Chiapas in southern Mexico. What has evolved is an irreverent, chaotic, and carnivalesque celebration of the absurd.
