Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment

December 14December 16
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

7 pm—Friday, Saturday & Sunday
2 pm—Saturday & Sunday

Festival Ballet Albuquerque is partnering with the National Hispanic Cultural Center to present an original production, The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment, choreographed by Patricia Dickinson Wells. The beloved holiday classic is transported to territorial New Mexico in the late 1800s, with added elements of the state’s heritage and traditions including Spanish dancers, southwestern snakes, sheep and shepherdesses, a lively fandango, a storyteller doll with children, and lavish Victorian-era western costumes. Now in its 8th year at the NHCC, the production showcases New Mexico heritage and traditions while maintaining the classical grace and family appeal of its origins. A live orchestra performs under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, former music director of the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra and an internationally renowned conductor and violinist who was a 2012 Latin Grammy nominee. Purchase tickets early—last year’s performances sold out!
$14, $20, $29, $38, $47 w/ $2 off for seniors, children and NHCC Members. Group rates available

La Canoa: The Nuclear Option: Perpetuating the Myth of New Mexico as Wasteland

December 15

2 pm

Please join UNM Assistant Professor Myrriah Gómez for a presentation on New Mexico and the nuclear option. Long before the nuclear industrial complex began in here in 1942, New Mexico was depicted by outsiders as a “wasteland.” In an effort to combat that historical portrayal, the New Mexico Bureau of Immigration issued Aztlán: The History, Resources and Attractions of New Mexico in 1885, a book that was used to recruit Anglos to New Mexico in an effort to shift the racial and ethnic demographics so as to earn statehood. Building on Anglo rhetoric from the 19th century, the federal government continues to use the same arguments to convert New Mexico into the premier repository for the nation’s nuclear waste. This talk will discuss the rearticulationof New Mexico as a nuclear wasteland in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Myrriah Gómez is a Nuevo Mexicana from the Pojoaque Valley. She is an Assistant Professor in the Honors College at the University of New Mexico. Myrriah’s current book project, NuclearNuevo México: Identity, Ethnicity, and Resistance in Atomic Third Spaces, examines the effects of the nuclear industry on people of color in New Mexico.

DNAWORKS and the NHCC Present The Real James Bond Was…Dominican!

February 14, 2019February 17, 2019
Wells Fargo Auditorium 1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

7:30 pm—Thursday-Saturday
2 pm—Sunday

What happens when a Dominican boy in Queens—with an imagination far beyond his shell, who won’t go anywhere without his nerf gun and is obsessed with James Bond—finds out that the real James Bond was Dominican? Written and performed by Chris Rivas, The Real James Bond Was…Dominican! is a true story, about how Porfirio Rubirosa was Ian Fleming’s inspiration for Bond, and how this discovery sets off a whole tragi-comic journey for a young Dominican actor-to-be. It is a young man’s guide to love, sex, color, code-switching, whitewashing, success, fake-it-till-you-make-it, and the roller coaster ride of finding one’s true self.
$25 adults; $20 NHCC members; $12 students, seniors, unemployed persons, & artists
