Every year, the dead have been commemorated in Portland’s longest-running Día de los muertos celebration. This season, a cabal of Aztec gods, having fallen out of favor in the modern world, seek to revive their relevance by reuniting a young clown with his departed partner, Augustina. Time turns backward as we unearth the interwoven roots of pre-Hispanic customs and traditions found at the juncture of life and death. Are we but dreaming and awake only when we die? Through music, dance and legend, we explore that thin veil that separates our world from the realm of our indigenous ancestors.
RAÍZ World Premiere. An original, bilingual celebration of Day of the Dead by Martín Milagro
Playing now through November 11, 2012
Miracle Theatre admits ages 5+, but this show is more suited for ages 8+ — not because of language or graphic content, but because the show opens with a dark and intense scene that might be a little strong for the younger ones.
We are excited to be giving away a 4 pack of tickets to the Sunday October 28th 2pm performance. Enter below.
