Los muertos al cajón y los vivos al fiestón!

Swirling skirts, painted faces, decorated altars, thoughtful remembrances. These are the vibrant celebrations of the dead by the living during Dia De Los Muertos. With elaborately decorated ofrendas laden with offerings to ancestors, living families gather to celebrate the dead through festive eating and drinking, lively dancing, and otherworldly singing.

From mystical legends to celebratory rituals, Verdigris Ensemble, in collaboration with Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico and cultural artist Ofelia Faz-Garza, opens a portal into the spirit world to celebrate with our ancestors. Known for their “beautiful staging” and “mesmerizing” costumes (TheaterJones), Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico evokes our ancestors through original choreography and movement. Cultural artist Ofelia Faz-Garza honors the dead through colorful ofrendas. 

Audiences are encouraged to bring remembrances such as flowers, photos, food, candles to put on ofrendas for the duration of the performance.
