Have you ever asked yourself who the characters on the Mexican Loteria cards really are?
The AZTLAN Dance Company recreates the land of Loteria by giving the iconic characters life and placing them in a dance of modernity where, like the card game, they ally and undercut each other to determine future fates, in the present. As the game caller (bruja) announces each card, the company imagines the dance. From El Valiente, to La Dama, from El Diablo to El Apache, Aztlan rolls the dice so that all audiences walk away a winner. It's Loteria, AZTLAN style. Orale!
