Project Description

Is a Mexican celebration of pre-Hispanic origin that honors the deceased on November 2, begins on November 1, and coincides with the Catholic celebrations of Día de los Fieles Fieles and All Saints. In Mexico it is a celebration of life remembering loved ones who came forward … but with joy and devotion, dedicating an altar for their visit to the world of the living, once a year. The characters are La Catrina, El Catrin and the Alebrijes – imaginary beings made up of physiognomic elements of different animals, not only fantastic but also real that form an amazing being full of magic and color that accompany souls to their new home.

Excerpts from the Day of the Dead program have been presented at: the Children’s Museum of Houston, Community Celebrations in Katy, Texas; Fort Bend County, Texas; Gala Party of the Institute of Hispanic Culture, Houston; Houston Chamber of Latin Entrepreneurs Houston; Rice University Arts of Tolerance ‘‘Dance for Humanity”; Flamart’s Latin Week Houston 2020; as well in educational institutions, among others.

Available all day long from December 5 – 21
