Join Brava! for Women in the Arts for the return of Vanessa Sanchez and La Mezcla’s multidisciplinary performance Pachuquísmo, a rhythmic remembrance of las Pachucas and their stylized power of rebellious resistance, live on our main stage!
SATURDAY, MARCH 11 & 12, 2023 AT 7:30 PM
Pachuqísmo – Back By Popular Demand!
Brava theatre, SF.
This show is for all the brujas and chingonas in our lives! Looook, we are so excited to be bringing Pachuquísmo back to Brava and on the road for our NYC debut at the Lincoln Center next month! Check out these clips from last year’s show that kicked off our first National tour!
Returning after three sold-out shows!
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.
Don’t miss the only chance to see Pachuquísmo this year in the Bay Area! Immediately following the SF performance, Pachuquísmo will make its New York City debut at the Lincoln Center!
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 1940’s through movement, spoken word and video.
Supported by the New England Foundation for the Arts, Pachuquísmo completed an 8-city National tour, including performances at CaraMía Theater in Texas and Jacob’s Pillow in Massachusetts.
