“El Sabor de México Sur,” “A Taste of Southern Mexico” 11/9
Oxnard College Ballet Folklórico Mestizo and the Mixteco Project Present Dance Performance: “El Sabor de México Sur,” “A Taste of Southern Mexico”
Saturday, November 9, 2013, 6:00 P.M., Oxnard College Performing Arts Building
Tickets: $15 general admission; $10 Children (5-12)
Oxnard College’s Ballet Folklórico Mestizo will host a special dance performance to raise funds for the Mixteco/Indigena Community Organizing Project (MICOP). The evening will feature dances from Southern Mexico by Ballet Folklórico Mestizo and the traditional dance of the Chinas Oaxaqueñas from the Mixteco Project and Nuu Savi of Oxnard. The Ballet Folklórico Nueva Antequera of Los Angeles will perform for the first time in Oxnard.
All funds raised from the evening will support the work of MICOP to build a strong, healthy indigenous community and to advocate for justice, access, and inclusion in Ventura County and beyond. MICOP trains leaders and provides support to Ventura County’s 20,000 Mixtec and indigenous immigrants, the majority of whom work in Oxnard’s strawberry industry. Programs include education and literacy, leadership development and community organizing, promoting health and strengthening families, increasing access, and preserving and celebrating indigenous culture. A portion of the funds will also go to support the families who were victims of the fire in Oxnard earlier this month.
Tickets are available by calling the MICOP office at 805-483-1166, or online at MICOP.brownpapertickets.com For more information, go to www.mixteco.org.
