Hasta La Muerte is an enthralling new production rooted in the Indigenous Mexican practice of celebrating Life and Death, universally known as Día de Los Muertos. In honoring the ancestors who came before us, Hasta La Muerte is a passionate, multi-dimensional performance filled with Zapateado, dance, song, altares y flores.
Hasta La Muerte will feature original and new works from Las Cafeteras, as well as inspired interpretations of traditional folk songs, such as “La Llorona,” “La Bruja,” “La Morena.” With a traditional altar on stage, alongside mesmerizing beauty of folkloric choreography, the Hasta La Muerte show will be a night of transcendent color and sound, a moving invitation to travel through time, rhythm and memory.
