La Paloma At The Wall
About La Paloma At The Wall
"La Paloma - At The Wall" is set at Friendship Park, on the Tijuana side of the border between Mexico and the United States. This vibrant and triumphant piece affirms with music and poetry the power of the human spirit to transcend boundaries, featuring Mexican folk dance, and with Tomás Bretón’s melodies brought to life by traditional Mexican son jarocho instrumental ensemble. Here, despite separation, cultures, lives, and spirits intersect, rise, and go on. Writer, Anna Deeny Morales, composer, Ulises Eliseo, and director Nick Olcott reveal the humanity of this powerful work.
