FLAS joins Grupo de Teatro Índigo (Indigo Theater Group) to present their annual Day of the Dead play, Calavera con Calavera (Skulls), an original piece written by co-founder Eddie Gonzalez. This performance will make history being the first local theater group with Latino immigrant members to present an all-Spanish play (with English subtitles).

It is Day of the Dead, and the Burgos Family is getting ready to celebrate this important date. It is a yearly tradition in Hacienda Calvario where they get together to celebrate. As they share how this celebration has been of great value in their lives, they also explain the meaning of every element presented; why altars are made, what objects can decorate them, the food that is eaten, why it is important to have candles, the traditional “calaveritas” (verses that rhyme). La Catrina (Death) roams around, reminding us that life is beautiful, and we need to take advantage of it.

Where do we go after we die? That is the main question each character asks. It’s a story between life and death where the ending will surprise the audience.

This performance is filled with musical numbers of traditional Mexican songs and dances, accompanied by UH-D mariachi and Danza Chikawa.
