Fiestas en Cusco !

Juin est le mois des fêtes à Cusco. Les écoles et universités défilent sur la place d’armes et chaque institution présente une délégation qui participe aux concours de danse folklorique. Les autres élèves viennent les encourager avec des banderoles et des vivas et des applaudissements nourris pour tenter d’influencer les juges. Voici les photos prises au cours du défilé des collèges, une fête toute en couleur.

June in Cusco, is a month of celebration. Every day, there is a different parade in plaza des armas (the main square of Cusco). Each school and university  send a small group of student to compete in a folkloric dance show. The others cheers them with flags and enthusiastic applause in an attempt to influence the referees. Here are the pictures I took from the high school parade, a very colorful show.

D’autres symbolisent le vol des condors (assez populaires, plusieurs groupes ont interprétés une forme de cette danse). Another popular one is the bird danse (condor ?), that more than one group executed.
