Grant or Program

Grant Amount
$45,000

Pachuquísmo is a multi-disciplinary, rhythmic performance that unveils a forgotten history of Mexican-American, female youth and explores the struggles that communities of color continue to face today. The work overlays tap dance with Mexican zapateado; features a live band that brings together Jazz with traditional Son Jarocho music from Veracruz, Mexico; and explores the Chicanx experience through percussive conversations. With the nine person, all-female cast donning full zoot suits, Pachuquísmo pulls the narrative of the Zoot Suit Riots out of the male-centered context and portrays the experiences of las pachucas of the 1940’s through movement, spoken word, and video.

Estimated Artist Fee: Estimates for 10 people, not including travel, housing or local transportation: $19,000/performance; $29,000/week.
