The Night Sky, A Revolutionary Rebozo

Ballet Folklorico en Aztlán, a Lemon Grove, CA-based dance/theater company and academy that’s been around since 1967, will bring an expansive and insightful (not to mention timely, in multiple ways) production to the Guadalupe this weekend. The Night Sky, A Revolutionary Rebozo, written by the company’s Artistic Director Viviana C. Enrique Acosta, is a passionate, heart-warming, and culturally responsive refutation, in the most joyous sense, of the empty and colonialist fall holidays and the false history that underpins them. Via one family’s journey through centuries of life, brought to life in dance and song and spoken word, show-goers will get an organic look at cultural traditions and the shape they take under the crushing weight of various forms of oppression and derision. The day after so many of us will celebrate, once again, no matter how much better we know, a charade of a national holiday, this show seems a fitting experience — in the name of justice perhaps, but truth at least.
