NAVIDAD: A MEXICAN-AMERICAN CHRISTMAS A NEW PRODUCTION BY THE ACCLAIMED DANCE COMPANY EXPLORES BI-CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS AND IDENTITY Calpulli Mexican Dance Company has developed a new production by Artistic Director Alberto Lopez Herrera and Co-Founder Juan Castaño celebrating the holiday traditions experienced by a young person of Mexican immigrant parents growing up in New York City that will be presented at the Thalia Spanish Theatre from November 30 through December 16, 2018 . From Aztec-inspired dance to Christmas carols, the youngster tries to bring their two worlds together. In a dream, they imagine the fusion of Mariachi music with Tchaikovsky, folk dance with ballet, and the wonderment of their two cultures. But a tempting character preaches the separation of these customs, and the youngster must choose. The company of 16 dancers and core of musicians led by Calpulli’s Music Director George Saenz return to the Thalia Spanish Theatre with “NAVIDAD : A Mexican-American Christmas.” The entirely new program tells a story with commissioned works by Mexican and Mexican-American guest choreographers with new musical arrangements and original works.

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company ha desarrollado una nueva producción del Director Artístico Alberto Lopez Herrera y Co-Fundador Juan Castaño. Una deslumbrante puesta en escena que celebra las tradiciones navideñas a través de los ojos de un hijo de padres Mexicanos que emigran a la ciudad de Nueva York. El espectáculo de música y baile será presentado en el Teatro Thalía del 30 de Noviembre al 16 de Diciembre. El show cuenta la historia de un joven que intenta unir sus dos mundos culturales: el de la Cultura Azteca mexicana y el de las fiestas Navideñas estadounidenses. En un sueño, el protagonista visualiza la fusión de música de Mariachi con clásicos de Tchaikovsky, danza folklórica con ballet, y disfruta admirando ambas culturas. Pero un personaje antagonista intenta influenciar al menor a mantener las culturas y las costumbres separadas, y el joven deberá escoger. La compañía cuenta con 16 bailarines y un grupo de músicos, dirigido por el Director Musical George Saenz. Una nueva propuesta artística que cuenta una bella historia con piezas encargadas a coreógrafos Mexicanos y Mexico-Americanos con arreglos musicales nuevos y números originales.
