Calpulli Mexican Dance Company presents an original, limited-run holiday production, “NAVIDAD: A Mexican-American Christmas” at Thalia Spanish Theatre in Sunnyside, Queens, from November 30 to December 16, 2018, The new production celebrates the holiday traditions experienced by a young person of Mexican immigrant parents growing up in New York City. 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. The program, with 16 dancers and core of musicians led by Calpulli’s Music Director George Saenz, tells a story with commissioned works by Mexican and Mexican-American guest choreographers with new musical arrangements and original works.
