Lunes, 4 de marzo, 19hs: Cada vez que caminamos cerca del Río Grande se pueden escuchar los profundos sonidos de la naturaleza. Y en especial , los trinos de los pájaros. El Valle del  Río Grande, sus sonidos y sus pájaros son la inspiración de la puesta musical y teatral MIGRANT SONGS  (Canciones migratorias): ¿nos parecemos los seres humanos a los pájaros? ¿Migramos como ellos?

Hoy, en Espejos de Aztlán conducido por Cristina Baccin, conversamos con la profesora de la University of New Mexico Szu- Han Ho, directora de la obra; nos acompañan Lina Ramos, conductora de la puesta en escena y Selene Vences-Ortiz, uno de los testimonios sobre el que se basa esta producción creativa.

Migrant Songs (o Canciones Migratorias) se estrenará en el marco del Décimo Noveno Festival Anual Internacional de Revoluciones Teatrales en Albuquerque. Su estreno será en el Centro Nacional de Cultura Hispana, el 28 y 29 de marzo a las 19:15 hs.

Mon. 3/4, 7p: Every time we walk near the Rio Grande we can hear the deep sounds of nature and especially the trills of birds. The Rio Grande Valley, its sounds and its birds are the inspiration of MIGRANT SONGS, a choir performance with stories and songs from human and non-human migrants: how much we humans resemble to birds? Do we migrate like them? 

Today in Espejos de Aztlán -hosted by Cristina Baccin-, we´ll talk about Migrant Songs, a performance directed, performed  and composed by mostly women: UNM Associate Professor and Director Szu-Han Ho; conductor Lina Ramos, and Selene vences-Ortiz, whose own story is part of the creative process in MIGRANT SONGS. The performance will be presented during the  19th Annual Revolutions International Theatre Festival in Albuquerque, and it will take place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, on March 28th and 29th at 7:15pm
