The figure of a cart and an origami bull will come out of a giant book and the stories of the widow, the duende, the guajojó and the cart of the afterlife will be heard. These activities will be part of the tribute to traditional writing, which will take place in the Brazil pavilion, within the framework of the XXIV Santa Cruz de la Sierra International Book Fair.
Porfirio Azogue, in charge of executing the initiative, reported that universal artists will also be personified, such as: Leonardo da Vinci, Frida Kahlo, Michelangelo’s David and Vincent van Gogh. There will also be the living statues of Noel Kempff Mercado, Gladys Moreno and Raúl Otero Reiche.
“Children will be told the stories of the characters, myths and legends,” explained Azogue. For this, she will work with a team of experienced actors and talented young people, who will make possible the walk through universal art and Santa Cruz literature.
