Donkey Jaw Bone, inspired by Mexican’s theatrical wrestling form, Lucha Libre, was commissioned by New York’s Mexico Now Festival and choreographed by Karole Armitage with Armitage Gone! Dance. It sits at the border of sport, dance and ritual, invoking connections between sometimes contradictory domains: rural and urban, tradition and modernity, ritual and parody, machismo and feminism, politics and spectacle. The dance draws on Balanchine’s Agon, (the ancient Greek term for struggle or contest), pre-Columbian and contemporary minimalism, drag queen style and re-enacts documentary Lucha Libre wrestling matches, portrayed with a nod to the traditional characters of Lucha Libre - the Tecnico or good guys, the rudo or heels and the Exotico or campy, effeminate wrestlers.

The Traditional music is pre-Colombian and is performed live on pre-Columbian instruments, the teponaztli (a pitched slit-log drum), the hueheutl (an upright tubular drum), ayoyotes (an Aztec percussion instrument made from the shells of the ayoyote tree tied around the ankle), the quijada, (a donkey jawbone) and the jarana (a guitar like instrument from the Veracruz region of Mexico).
