Silvita Diaz Brown | Legendas y Realidades
Leyendas y Realidades delves into Mexican mythology and its teachings celebrating choreographer Silvita Diaz Brown’s Mexican heritage as well as her adopted country. The work looks to both cultures for insights about gender equality, female strength and social justice through myths translated into movement, sound, and costume. Leyendas y Realidades will develop as dance vignettes capturing the essence of the myths to manifest current matters in our system but with a touch of mysticism and Mexican folklore.
