Cuentos de AztlanStories from the Homeland
A Storytelling Show featuring the traditional stories of the Hispanic Southwest
For generations Latino families have had cuentos, traditional stories and legends, at the center of their family experience. Their cuentos expressed their dreams, their hard learned lessons about life, their religious and spiritual yearnings, the teaching of their elders and their great warm sense of humor. Cuentos de Aztlan, Stories From the Homeland, is an engaging and illuminating journey into the Latino soul as expressed in traditional and modern stories. The show features fascinating tales from Angel’s vast repertoire of stories. The show includes morality tales explaining the lesson of right and wrong, instructive animal fables, chistes, short comics tales guaranteed to amuse, as well as amazing tales of wonder, transformation and magic.
