“MictlanRx” was created by Mexican artists Betsy Pardo and Jairo Heli. The title is a combination of Mictlan, a traditional place of the dead, and Rx, meaning prescription. Heli views the preservation and recognition of cultural traditions and identity as a means of healing what ails contemporary societies, according to a press release.
Musical arrangements by Edwin Bandala draw from the sounds and beats of Afro-Mexican traditional music. Cleo Parker Robinson Dance is based in Denver and has performed in more than 20 countries on five continents.
