Calpulli Mexican Dance Company brings its acclaimed production Boda Mexicana (Mexican Wedding) to audiences at the Hostos Center for the Arts and Culture. This will be the Company’s first season presented in the Bronx coinciding with its 15th anniversary. Boda Mexicana tells the story of the union of two people through Mexican songs, dances, customs, rituals and ceremonies. Under Artistic Director, Alberto Lopez Herrera and Music Director, George Saenz, the company of 20 dancers, guest performers, and core of musicians take audiences on a voyage through regional and ethnic traditions guided by Calpulli’s unique artistic interpretation. Two lovers travel through time to Mexican towns where we experience the customs of courtship, engagement, the ceremony, and the feast that follows. However, an enchantress seeks to break the two apart.
