Fall Performing Arts Curricular Series (PACS)

Alebrije Tales: Children of the Night

Just in time for Mexican Heritage Month, students will celebrate the Mexican culture with folk art, dance and music. Guided by a local Mexican performing artist Veronica Robles, students will be a part of an authentic, interactive experience. In addition to the class, Revels PACS students will participate in a local parade celebrating Mexican Heritage. Students will collaborate with students from the Veronica Robles Cultural Center to learn a traditional Mexican dance and walk in solidarity - celebrating Mexican Heritage! 


Alebrije Tales B 270.jpgOur Fall PACS class will be centered around a collection of Mexican folktales from Alebrije Tales: Children of the Night


Alebrije Tales: Children of the Night - Story #1: Jacinta and her pitaya tree. In this story, Jacinta is a beautiful song bird who needs to protect her pitaya tree at all costs from the outsiders. She learns home is where her heart is. Story #2: Coyotl and his gift. In this story, a coyote is given a special gift and learns quickly that life comes with consequences. Story #3: Cerulean the Bat. In this story, Cerulean the Bat struggles to fit in with land and flying animals. He needs to look deep within to find self-acceptance and love who he is, then love finds him.
