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 Migrant Songs.
Migrant Songs is a choral performance art piece that combines stories and songs from human and non-human migrants. This experimental visual and sound performance incorporates interviews with migrants living in the city of Albuquerque who come from many parts of the world, including Mexico, Cuba, El Salvador, Costa Rica, The Philippines, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, and Vietnam, to name a few. These stories of human migration are woven together with bird songs from the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico to explore how we think about migration, our sense of home and dislocation, as well as the biological role of song in both humans and non-humans.
Free and open to the public
Fiesta—12 noon-3:30 pm
Civil rights and labor leader César Chávez was born on March 31, 1927 in Yuma, AZ. Every year since his untimely death in 1993, the Recuerda a César Chávez Committee has commemorated the birth of this humble civil rights leader by marching in his honor and celebrating his life with music, dancing, poetry and enjoyable, culturally enriched activities for children. Our event is designed to educate the entire family about César Chávez and the farm worker movement. The Recuerda a César Chávez Committee is made up of organizations and individual volunteers who want to see Chávez’s legacy of peaceful activism continue for generations to come. Our mission is to educate our youth and communities about the legacy, life and work of this great civil rights leader—César Chávez.
