An ethnologist-funambulist meets the Zapotec maromeros from Santa Teresa, Veracruz, Mexico. Years later, they decide to perform the maroma as it was practiced before becoming “indigenous circus”. “Old fashioned-maroma” is a reconstruction of memory through the stories told by the ethnologist and by different generations of maromeros. The film introduces the foundation of dance, the structures building processes – from the request ceremony of the trees, the rites of protection and the maroma spectacle.
