TEATRO VIVO PRESENTS STORIES THAT MUST NOT DIE
AUSTIN, Texas — Teatro Vivo is excited to present Stories That Must Not Die, a recollection of tales from South Texas and along the Rio Grande. Stories that have been passed down through generations will be brought to life on stage under the direction of Alexis Arredondo.
Stories That Must Not Die takes us back to the days of telling ghost stories over a campfire, or listening to your grandparents share traditional folktales as they drink their evening cafecito with pan dulce. Stories such as ‘The Handsome Stranger,’ ‘Don Pedrito Jaramillo,’ and ‘La Llorona’ explore the age-old themes of vanity, greed, desperation, loss, and hope.
“The reason these are called stories that must not die is because they are slowly disappearing,” said Arredondo. “These stories are not only important to our culture, but remind us of daily valuable lessons of our society. They must live on just as it is important for our society and culture to keep living. These aren’t just folklore and legends, these are our stories.”
