Sunday 9 February – World Entertainment Stage

11.00am Bolivian dance, Tinkus.

A presentation of Bolivian dance from folkloric group Semillas de Bolivia

Tinku, an Andean tradition, began as a form of ritualistic combat. In the language of Quechua, the word “tinku” means encounter. In the language of Aymara it means “physical attack.” During this ritual, men and women from different communities will meet and begin the festivities by dancing. The women will then form circles and begin chanting while the men proceed to fight each other; rarely the women will join in the fighting as well. Large tinkus are held in Potosí, Bolivia and Puno, Peru, during the first few weeks of May.
