Ballet Nepantla: Mística
September 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Mística tells stories of the ancients through new choreographic renditions of El Venado, Viejitos, and other traditional favorites. New stories also emerge, performed in black light, as the dead come to life in celebratory fashion.
Ballet Nepantla’s choreography employs a fusion style of storytelling, where Mexican folklórico, classical ballet, and contemporary dance come together to create an emerging genre. Mística honors our ancestors, and the dead take the stage as the centerpiece of the show. Performed in blacklight, Mística ignites the senses and accentuates the evocative beauty of Día de Muertos.
