Once a Blue Moon - Cada Luna Azul

Inspired by Argentine and other Latino stories, the performance follows a traveler (Carlos Uriona) who returns to his hometown of Agua Santa after many years. The story reflects an increasingly universal situation in which ‘progress’ displaces people, in this case causing a flood. It is a story of memory, culture, and song. Learn more >>

The Chagall Cycle

Begun in 2010, The Chagall Cycle was inspired by Marc Chagall’s paintings, color lithographs, mosaics, and the approach to mythology depicted in his work, to generate both outdoor and indoor performances. The Chagall Cycle includes the Firebird, The Odyssey, Shahrazad: A Tale of Love and Magic, and the indoor The Grand Parade.
