OTILA: LINDA FRONTERA gracefully welcomes our third season on stage. Based in the 19th century, OTILA: LINDA FRONTERA takes you on a one of a kind journey that exhibits Mexican traditions and folkloric dances representative of the Mexican states that lie along the border, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific. The traditional movement and unique contemporary blend showcased through elaborate costuming and production design, takes us back to old folk tales while growing up in the American Southwest. The wild west and folky feel tributes dance, heritage and history on both sides of our border.
