Review: “Dia de los Muertos” at the Town Hall

True Love Survives After Death in Dia de los Muertos

“With its emphasis on honoring the transition of death, as well as those who have passed on and the undying power of love, Dia delos Muertos exemplifies the roots of the commercial holiday we now know as Halloween. If The Nutcracker is the go-to performance of the Winter months, Dia de los Muertos should be made canon for the Fall.”

New York Times Review: “Dia de los Muertos” at the Town Hall

Review: When La Catrina Met Giselle

“The dance numbers keep coming — feet stamping, skirts swirling — as narrative turns are woven in with easy-to-follow clarity. The lines of female dead, crossing one another to the same accelerating music to which the Wilis cross, have the same effect as the original, heightened by richer colors. And the hopeful ending allows the men to finish with their forte, striking machetes together under high kicks.”
