AZTLAN creates dance that imagines a future informed by the past, in the present

One Weekend! April 7 - 9 at 8 pm | April 10 at 2 pm

#OntheRocks #AZTLANDanceCo

On the Rocks is a full evening-length performance of AZTLAN's signature innovative dance that blends and fuses tradition and modernity into evocative stories that narrate Austin's diverse cultures, histories, and experiences. The On the Rocks performance serves up delightful dance recipes that range from the whimsically delightful tunes of yesteryear to the deliberately strong interpretations of contemporary Eastside barrio culture. Capturing the spirit of Austin's diverse Latino/Xicano culture, the performance reflects moving stories that narrate life in the ever-changing borderlands. As in all of AZTLANs repertorio, On the Rocks is both about remembering and re-imagining - locating dance, culture, and community within the shared lived experience of community and thus providing fluid ways of making stories relevant and resonant for today's audiences. 
About AZTLAN Dance Company -The AZTLAN Dance Company was founded in 1974 to create a stable and conducive environment for the creation, preservation, and performance of Xicano/Latino dance in Austin, Texas. Celebrating 40+ years of cultural programming, the company presents orignal and thought provoking work that shares cultural stories and truths about the US Latino/Xicano experience.
