Imagine the impossible, the magnificent, the terrifying … Like a garden of dreams, folktales are filled with legendary creatures who lead us down the paths of discovery. For some, it’s about love; for others, it’s about knowledge.
For young Cristina, it’s about listening to her heart and finding her voice. Cristina is about to finish high school and go to college, and she needs all the support she can get. But her family is distracted by the technology of modern life, from cell phones and text messages to bills and budgets. They are all too busy to listen.
But when Cristina enters a dream world, she encounters several familiar characters from Latino folklore – the jaguar, the armadillo, and the daughter of the Sun God, among others – who not only help her speak her mind, but give her the confidence to face her future.
This play is presented in Spanish with easy-to-follow supertitles in English.
