Dia de Los Muertos 2012
The celebrated dance troupe Esperanza del Valle will return to perform during El Teatro Campesino's annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration in a new show entitled "Magia y Color." Performances are scheduled for Friday November 2nd at 8pm , Saturday November 3rd at 2pm and 8pm, and Sunday November 4th at 2pm. Viewings of the altares set up in the El Teatro Campesino Playhouse will begin one hour prior to performance times.
The annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration is a weekend-long cultural festival that commemorates and honors the lives of departed loved ones through dance, music, offerings and art.
There will be a variety of fun, family-oriented Day of the Dead activities in front of the ETC Playhouse from 4pm to 7pm on Saturday, Nov. 3 in lieu of the annual procession this year. The new and improved procession will return to the streets of San Juan Bautista in 2013.
Esperanza del Valle, based out of Watsonville and active for over 30 years, is recognized for cultivating and promoting an understanding of Mexican culture through its rich folkloric dances rooted in the merging of indigenous European and African heritage. Their presentations are festive, colorful, full of life and variety. This year's presentation "Magia y Color" features an all-new program of dances from the south of Mexico along with Esperanza's iconic piece "Macaria."
Ticket prices are: Adults $15; Seniors/Students $12; Children $8.
