Minnecanos theatre performance May 3 at Dordt

May 1, 2007


Minnecanos, a buoyant theatrical celebration of Mexican American history and culture, will be presented by the Mixed Blood Theatre Company on Thursday, May 3, at 7 p.m., in Dordt College’s Classroom Building C160.

This performance is sponsored by the Students Without Borders Club at Dordt College, and there is no cost to attend.

Minnecanos (by Joe Minjares and Thomas Benitez) relates the story of four generations in a Mexican-American family. Performers include Brandon Williams, Nora Montenez and Pedro Bayon. Songs (called corridos) play an important part in the production, with instrumentation including bass, guitar, accordion, violins and trumpets.

Mixed Blood Theatre, Minneapolis, annually tours several culturally specific shows throughout the country, primarily to schools and colleges. It is a multi-racial professional theater company that celebrates cultural diversity, individual equality, and artistic excellence.
