WHAT IS LUCHA LIBRE?
Spanish for “Free fight” – LUCHA LIBRE is a term used in Mexico for a form of professional wrestling developed in the country. Professional wrestling is an athletic form of entertainment based on a portrayal of a combat sport.
Mexican wrestling is characterized by colorful masks, rapid sequences of holds and maneuvers, as well as “high-flying” maneuvers. The wearing of masks has developed special significance, and matches are sometimes contested in which the loser must permanently remove his mask, which is a wager with a high degree of weight attached.
Lucha Fantastica are a crew of Mexican wrestlers, referees, musicians, DJs, hula hoopists, fire eaters and exotic dancers with over 10 years experience nationally and internationally! A diverse group of Mexican and Australian performing artists who will be in Canberra one more time as part of Day of the Dead Fiesta – Canberra!
