There Must Be Other Names for the River

November 16, 2019

7 pm (doors open at 6 pm)

516 ARTS, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and UNM Art & Ecology Program artists Marisa Demarco, Dylan McLaughlin, and Jessica Zeglin present There Must Be Other Names for the River. This composition for six singers is based on streamflow data from the river known today as the Rio Grande. Each singer channels the river, representing a point where flows were observed and recorded. Arranged in the shape of the water body within the performance space, the singers’ voices change in intensity with the flows and distort over time as human interference is felt along the length of the river. After embodying past decades, the singers project possible futures for the voice of the river and the bodies through which its waters flow. The artists say, “The Rio Grande is itself a living being who has experiences over time including birth, growth, and possibly death…. By listening and embodying, can we change our relationships with the river and see beyond its uses to humans? Can we hear the river as more than a resource?” The original sound art performance is presented in conjunction with Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande, an exhibition currently on view at 516 ARTS.

Free public event

Los Pastores de Belén

December 15, 2019

3 pm

Los Pastores, the New Mexican Shepherds Play, was brought to New Mexico in 17th century from Spain. The play follows the adventures, antics, and battles of shepherds, angels, and devils. On their journey to Bethlehem to take their presents, the shepherds are waylaid by Demonio. The audience is amused by the mischief of Bartolo, the lazy shepherd, and the rhetorical prowess and swordplay of San Miguel.

Before it was revived in 1973, when a manuscript was discovered in a home in Las Nutrias, the last time that Los Pastores had been performed in this area was in 1929. Filomena Baca and a group of parishioners of Nuestra Señora de Belén have been performing the play ever since.

(taken from Enrique Lamadrid’s “Reflections on Los Pastores“)

Free public event

A discussion and Q&A session before the performance will be led by Filomena Baca and Dante Berry, one of the actors in the play, which has been performed by members of his family for generations.
