Produced by Tricklock Company, the Revolutions International Theatre Festival welcomes performance companies from all over the globe to perform and connect across cultures and communities. For the 19th annual festival, Tricklock and the NHCC present Words from the Walls. World-renowned Nemcatacoa Teatro is partnering with Viola Award-winning Dark Sky Aerial to create this ambulatory, aerial theatre experience, with a storyline connected by poetry and visual images, that will take audiences on a surreal journey through walls and buildings on the NHCC campus. The outdoor performance includes aerial dance, stilting, and bilingual poetry, incorporating themes that are significant to Hispanic communities, such as immigration and culture.
$12 with $5 off for students, seniors and NHCC members
The NHCC will present its second annual celebration of the small paper bag lanterns with sand and candles that some call “farolitos” and others call “luminarias”—a New Mexico tradition. Events from 2-7 pm will include a talk about the history, facts and urban legends of the luminaria/farolito, an illuminated bike parade, create your own “iluminarte” (paper bag) workshop, a student art and writing show, and more.
All events are free and open to the public and take place on the beautifully illuminated campus of the NHCC.
