Don’t miss the launch of a new bilingual touring production by Teatro Milagro …
Written by Dañel Malán, directed by Matthew B. Zrebski and sponsored by Juan Young Trust and La Bonita Restaurant
January 12 - 21, 2012 • Milagro Theatre, 525 SE Stark St., Portland
Swept up in an immigration raid and deported to Mexico, Rio, Luz and Sal are suddenly immersed into indigenous prophecies surrounding B’aktun 13, the final era in the Mayan calendar. In the Yucatán, they encounter Mayan deities Ixchel, goddess of water and moon, and Ahpuch, god of death, who lead the trio deeper into a mythological universe. Time revolves like a Mayan calendar as each must face the consequences of their pasts. When the end of the era of B’aktun 13 arrives on December 21, 2012, will the world change? Or will they?
This production is bilingual. The performance is approximately one hour and suitable for ages 10 and older.
