For one of the final performances to be hosted by Washington State University’s soon-to-be-unfunded Performing Arts department, foremost American dance company Cleo Parker Robinson Dance introduces a culturally infused performance with “MictlanRx.” Created by Mexican artists Betsy Pardo and Jairo Heli, with musical arrangements by Edwin Bandala, “MictlanRx” conveys the struggles of indigenous and Afro-Mexican people. It also asks the audience to partake in some reflection, posing questions like how modern socio-economic systems impact indigenous and Afro-Mestizo communities. The performance features avant garde dance styles and a traditional Afro-Mexican instrument called the donkey jawbone. The performance’s name is a reference to Mictlan, a place of the dead in Aztec mythology, and the abbreviation for prescription, “Rx.”

Sat, Feb. 10 at 7:30 pm • $16-$22 • Jones Theatre at Daggy Hall • WSU Pullman campus • performingarts.wsu.edu • 800-325-SEAT
