GAVIOTA (Seagull)

A performing arts interpretation based on the magical and philosophical story about the real importance of life and self perfection,  "Jonathan Livingston Seagull” written by Richard Bach.

This book is a song for spirits who have lived so long and so quietly by themselves.
Jonathan Seagull is a story for one who knows that somewhere there’s a higher way of living than scuffing the tracks of others, someone who yearns to fly the way their own heart yearns to fly.

It’s a reminder, this little fable, that the path for us to follow is already written within, that it's for each of us to find our own loves, and live them brightly for ourselves. Others may watch, they may admire our resolution or despise it, but our one freedom is for us to love and to choose every day of our lives, as we wish.

    LILY y la MARIPOSA (Lily and the Butterfly) is a performing arts interpretation based on the original play, Lily y la Mariposa, written by local writer, Lucinda McDermott. LILY y la MARIPOSA portrays the Mexican traditional festivity "Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead).

    "Lily y la Mariposa"  by Lucinda McDermott

    A performing arts interpretation based on the original play, by local playwright, Lucinda McDermott. The story portrays the Mexican traditional festivity "Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead).  Eleven year old Lily is experiencing loss for the first time. The timing is horrible; Halloween. Lily finds anything that has to do with death and dying sad. Her friend Miguel has the solution. He takes her to visit his abuela, Mama Rosa, who he calls “a little crazy, and a little magical”. Mama Rose introduces Lily to the Mexican celebration Dia de los Muertos, which honors the lives of loved ones who have passed. Mama Rosa is indeed magical, and her story of how Dia de los Muertos came to be becomes an interactive journey not only for Lily and Miguel, but for the audience as well. Lily learns that the Aztecs believed spirits of the dead rode off on the wings of butterflies, and that although death is a part of life, the love we feel for those who have passed remains. Lily y la Mariposa helps children and parents navigate the inevitable topic of death. The play introduces and reinforces rich cultural elements of Latin America, and utilizes everyday Spanish vocabulary with seamless translations.
