Program Description
Dancing in the spaces between here and there, somewhere and nowhere, the AZTLAN Dance Company presents a full-evening of original choreography that journeys through the surreal and magical ( and sometimes dangerous) borderlands of Xicano consciousness.

Set in a time of yesteryear, AZTLAN dancers enter the Borderlands/Frontera in order to cross the mystery world(s) of both familiar and unfamiliar characters, settings, and experiences. From the carnival tonic salesman to the moonlight sorcerer (hechisera); from the lone, lost vaquera to the vertigo lost posse looking for new horizons - the ReFried Enchilada Western is a place you will want to know, but fear to enter. Travel with the AZTLAN dancers as they take on all risk, so that you don’t have to. Prepare yourself, it’s a whole lotta Enchilada!

About AZTLAN Dance Company
The AZTLAN Dance Company was founded in 1974 to create a stable and conducive environment for the creation, preservation, and performance of Xicano/Latino dance in Austin, Texas. Celebrating more than 40 years of cultural programming, the company presents innovative and thought provoking work that shares cultural stories and truths about the US Latino/Xicano experience.

AZTLAN is the mythical homeland of our Native American forefathers. It is considered the extension of land that spans from Alaska along the pacific coast of U.S. through Colorado, Texas and into the valley of Mexico. The native American people of this land once shared language and numerous cultural beliefs. The values that have existed through the ages are respected and shared as the heritage of our Native American forefathers. AZTLAN remains the symbol and icon of cultural identity for the native people of the US Southwest and Mexico.
