More About “Historias y Recuerdos”
“Historias y Recuerdos” incorporates traditional dance and music interspersed with video segments of stories as told by people within the Guadalupe community. The choreography honors the memories of generations past and brings them to life on stage. This unique combination of oral histories, traditional dance and modern technology creates a theatrical experience for audiences of all ages. Local community members have unselfishly shared deep rooted stories about their lives growing up in the Guadalupe barrio. These stories have included going to the Guadalupe Theater on Saturdays to watch movies and variedades, working at the local pecan factory, going off to war, and many others.
“Unique in their expression, the dancers translate stories collected from local community members into beautifully choreographed dance theater segments. Informed by video interviews, the dancer-choreographers designed the staging and dance segments based in the Folkloric tradition,” said Jeannette Chavez, Dance Company Director.
