On September 21, 2013 I will be the featured artist for Flower, Song, Dance: A Poetic and Musical Celebration of Aztec Culture. I will read from my newly published translations of Aztec verse against the backdrop of Dr. Carl Seale’s Toxcatl, a ballet inspired by the celebration of the fifth month of the Aztec calendar. The presentation will be accompanied by video of the historic 1989 performance of Toxcatl featuring the Valley’s Ballet Folkórico. The event will take place at the University of Texas Pan American Library Auditorium, in Edinburg, Texas, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Copies of my latest book, Flower, Song, Dance: Aztec and Mayan Poetry, will be on sale, as will CDs of Dr. Seale’s music.
