“Pachuquísmo” by Vanessa Sanchez & La Mezcla // Sonoma

November 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - November 19, 2022 @ 10:00 pm

A multi-disciplinary, rhythmic performance that unveils a forgotten history of Mexican-American female youth

Pachuquísmo is a multi-disciplinary, rhythmic performance that unveils a forgotten history of Mexican-American female youth and explores the struggles that communities of color continue to face today.

Recipient of the Isadora Duncan Award for Outstanding Production, the work overlays tap dance with Mexican zapateado, features a live band that brings together jazz with traditional son jarocho music from Veracruz, Mexico, and explores the Chicanx experience through percussive conversations.

With the all-female cast donning full zoot suits, Pachuquísmo pulls the narrative of the Zoot Suit Riots out of the male-centered context and portrays the experiences of las pachucas of the 1940s through movement, spoken word, and video. Pachuquísmo is funded by the New England Foundation for the Arts and was featured on the Joyce Theater “JoyceStream” in 2020.

The presentation of Pachuquísmo was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
