Navidades! Christmas on K Street


Posted on December 11


Celebrate exciting Christmas customs from Mexico—ballet folkorico, street theater and a Mexican mercado—at the two-part “Navidades! Christmas on K Street” event on Sunday, Dec. 15, presented by Calidanza Dance Company, La Raza Galería Posada and El Teatro Espejo.

Part one, “La Pastorela de Sacramento,” starts at 1:30 p.m. outdoors at the Convention Center Plaza at 13th and K streets. The performance, adapted by Tomas Benitez, Manuel Pickett and Marie Acosta, will include a 45-minute modern reenactment of Mexico’s traditional Christmas pageant. Audience participation is highly encouraged!

Meander with the mobile pageant as it makes it way to the Crest Theatre at 3 p.m. for a stunning presentation of “Navidades y Tradiciones,” Calidanza Dance Company’s latest creation under the direction of Steven Valencia. Twenty-two dancers will be accompanied by Vinic-Kay folkloric musicians as they present various Mexican traditions—Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Dia de Candelaria (Candle Mass Day), Afro-Jarocho (celebrating African heritage in Mexico) and Carnaval in Sinaloa. The dancing will give way to live music honoring Las Posadas and a mariachi Christmas complete with a piñata. You can also buy unique gifts at the Mexican mercado in the Crest lobby before and after the show.
