NAKA DANCE THEATER + VIOLETA LUNA
YERBA BUENA CENTER FOR THE ARTS
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Jose Navarrete (Naka Dance Theater) and Violeta Luna combined their uniquely Mexican black humor to create a kaleidoscope of poetic images drawn from our abuse of fresh water. Among the many scenes: a polar bear/water vendor dances to meringue and the Aztec Gods of Water literally spit their contempt for human ignorance and destructiveness.
