Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance & Culture Center’s “Sembrando Herencia – Boricua Spirit” | Dec. 8

 

PRFDance Dec 2013 Performance

Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance (PRFD) presents “Sembrando Herencia – Boricua Spirit,” at the George Washington Carver Museum & Cultural Center on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2013, at 3 p.m. Each year, “Sembrando Herencia” combines live music, dance and theater to raise awareness of often-forgotten elements from Puerto Rico’s rich heritage. The original plays bring history to life for the audience, actors, dancers, musicians and performing arts students who share in the experience. #Austin #ATX

Boricua Spirit is an original story of a small mountain community who — together with the force of nature — saves Puerto Rico from destruction. Boricua Spirit was inspired by the true story of Casa Pueblo, a Puerto Rican mountain community, who saved the central mountains from open pit mining. Casa Pueblo’s 15 year struggle (1980-1996) saved their mountains, forests and rivers and spearheaded a remarkable change in the national forest policy.
