About this Event
A new play by Diego Florez-Arroyo
Cuauhtémoczin is a mythological impressionist work that uses ancient mythology and the setting of Pr*son to house the connection of Cuauhtémoc’s last message and Dante’s journey through life.
Through a captivating multi-media performance, Cuauhtémoczin journeys through a return to self in the darkest of isolation; leaving audiences in awe, and connecting them with a Glimpse of Aztec culture and their own warrior spirit.
Cuauhtémoczin is presented by Control Group Productions, MCA Denver, and Diego Florez-Arroyo.
Free parking is available at North High School. Doors open at 6 PM, performances start at 7 PM.
