In a celebration on the cusp of Cinco de Mayo, Calpulli Mexican Dance Company will present Puebla: The Story of Cinco de Mayo as part of its national tour. Under the artistic direction of Alberto Lopez Herrera, Puebla tells a universal tale of the underdog fighting impossible odds. The setting is the Battle of Puebla when a small army of Mexican soldiers and commoners defeated the French army, the strongest military force of the time, on the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), 1862. Through folkloric and contemporary dance, live music and elaborate costuming, the Company will elaborate on the history of the now-famous date and celebrate the culture and people of Puebla.
