You are welcome to join ‘On the Rocks’, East Austin’s elite dance performance this coming weekend! Thursday, April 7th through the 9th at 8:00 pm and on Sunday, April 10th at 2:00 pm.
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.
