The Aztlan Dance Company presents the world premiere of "ITZPAPALOTL: Obsidian Butterfly," an original full-length contemporary dance performance that explores the mythic and magical space(s) of ancient Aztec myth that informs modern mestizo woman and her lived experience.

Performance Description:
 AZTLAN presents the story of a young girl, Ixchel, as she looks into the dark night sky to wonder what her life has in store and what she will grow up to be like.  Mesmerized by the mystery of the moon and star's everlasting glow, Ixchel is visited by the ancient and divine night-sprit Itzpapalotl who seizes the opportunity to whisper the secrets of earthly mestiza life.  Set in modern time, ITZPAPALOTL: Obsidian Butterfly narrates the cyclical nature of life and death, and the ephemerality of time in which memory is based.  As our elders convey stories of their life journey, in them we hear the traces of culture that have been nurtured throughout the centuries.

Join us as AZTLAN once again dances its unique signature blend of Austin styled contemporary/expressive Xicano/Latino dance. Orale!

About AZTLAN Dance Company:
The AZTLAN Dance Company was founded in 1974 to create a stable and conducive environment for the creation, preservation, and performance of Xicano/Latino dance in Austin, Texas.  Celebrating more than 40 years of cultural programming, the company presents innovative and thought provoking work that shares cultural stories and truths about the US Latino/Xicano experience.
