Experience history come to life as Tierra Caliente Academy of Arts takes you on a cultural journey in the stage production “Mexihco: The Journey Continues.” The journey begins in the time of the Mayan Civilization with the myth of Quetzalcoatl and “The Rabbit and the Moon.” Travel from Southern Mexico (Campeche) to the land of polka in the North (Nuevo Leon). Be part of a love story that rises through the tragedies and victories of the Mexican Revolution and recall the stories of its legendary characters with the “Corridos” that came thereafter. Closing the production, get a glimpse into the Rumba, Jarabe y Son musical traditions that depict an identity in our folklore.
Directed by Jose Jaimes (Tierra Caliente Academy of Arts) in partnership with the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, “‘Mexihco: The Journey Continues’ is our most ambitious dance production to date. Through it, we strive to promote education, awareness and appreciation for the cultural arts.”
