Paperback. 351 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.9in. x 0.9in.In 1983, a group of citizens in San Cristbal de las Casas, Chiapas, formed Sna Jtzibajom, the Tzotzil-Tzeltal Maya writers cooperative. In the two decades since, this group has evolved from writing and publishing bilingual booklets to writing and performing plays that have earned them national and international renown. Anthropologist Robert M. Laughlin has been a part of the group since its beginnings, and he offers a unique perspective on its development as a Mayan cultural force. The Monkey Business Theatre, or Teatro Loil Maxil, as this branch of Sna Jtzibajom calls itself, has presented plays in virtually every corner of the state of Chiapas, as well as in Mexico City, Guatemala, Honduras, Canada, and in many museums and universities in the United States. It has presented to the world, for the first time in drama, a view of the culture of the Mayas of Chiapas. In this work, Laughlin presents a translation of twelve of the plays created by Sna Jtzibajom, along with an introduction for each. Half of the plays are based on myths and half on the social, political, and economic problems that have confrontedand continue to confrontthe Mayas of Chiapas.
