Nuevo Laredo

at Dixon Place, April 2011

Nuevo Laredo is a dance theater work linking the Day of the Dead tradition with the current narcocultura of the Mexican drug wars. The piece follows an assassin, a new-age drug lord and la Santa Muerte (Saint Death) as they go about their daily business in the fog of a rehab center and the ghost town Nuevo Laredo, a borderland where Life teeters between Faith and Death.
