La Mezcla: Ghostly Labor + Pachuquísmo
June 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Four Latinas dressed in tap shoes and wearing Zoot Suit-era clothing and makeup. They are standing on a single tap board in front of an auto shop with a pale green vintage car in the background against a mural of traditional Latin and Indigenous dancers and musicians.
More than a dance and music ensemble, La Mezcla is a polyrhythmic creative force rooted in Chicana, Latina and Indigenous traditions.
In their YBG Festival debut the company presents a sneak peek at their new show Ghostly Labor and excerpts from the award-winning production Pachuquísmo, an all-womxn tap and son jarocho performance about pachucas and the Zoot Suit Riots in World War II-era Los Angeles.
