LUNA MEXICANA - Oakland Ballet celebrates the iconic Mexican holiday, El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with colorful costumes, vibrant music and festive dancing. Day of the Dead originated in the Aztec Culture and evolved into a Mexican/American Festival celebrated on November 1st and 2nd with processions, decorating graves of loved ones, and the building of Ofrendas (offerings) to honor the dead.
In Luna Mexicana, a young woman’s dreams revive her relatives and friends who all dance back to life in the forms of teetering skeletons, skirt swishing girls, a high flying “deer dancer” and a deathly Bride and Groom. Luna Mexicana is danced to a suite of Mexican music that includes indigenous instruments and witty electronic fusions.
The audience is encouraged to attend in Day of the Dead costume appropriate for a public community event.
