"La Natividad - The angel Gabriel is telling Mary about the birth of a baby"

La Natividad brings the Christmas story into this time and the complexity of our immediate neighborhood.

Initially conceived to bring all residents of the area together, the performance is bilingual (in Spanish and English) and incorporates the Mexican holiday tradition of Las Posadas.

Throughout the performance, the audience moves from place to place and becomes part of the story.

Beginning at Heart of the Beast Theatre and Mercado Central, the audience accompanies Maria and José through the streets as they look for refuge.

The candle lit procession ends with a magical, puppet-filled Nativity, plus a fiesta— complete with music and food.
