Event

Floricanto's Fiesta del Día de los Muertos
ARC Pasadena will be transformed into a local cemetery by Danza Floricanto/USA to commemorate  their Annual "Fiesta del Día de los Muertos" on Friday and Saturday November 2nd and 3rd at 8:00 p.m. Through a series of vignettes that celebrate and honor this very traditional Day of the Dead Chicano style-the company, under the direction of Gema Sandoval, will tackle a series of social issues (love, death, pregnancy, and immigration among others) with humor and respect.  Now in its tenth   year, "Día De Los Muertos" has become an annual Floricanto tradition.  

In the foyer of ARC Pasadena on Novemberber 2nd and 3rd, the audience will find a traditional ofrenda (community altar), created by Floricanto member Christie Rios to commemorate the dead. There will be pictures of loved ones, along with their favorite foods, flowers and messages of love. Audiences in attendance also will be invited to write the names of their own departed loved ones and place these names on the altar, to join in the remembrance.  Early arrivals will also be able to have their faces painted.

As the audience moves into the theatre/"cemetery," a series of characters who live there will tell their stories and share their concerns. The evening's guide will be the famous skeleton known as "La Catrina," first conceived by early 20th-century Mexican graphic artist José Guadalupe Posada, and made famous in the murals of Diego Rivera.
