Time: Sunday, May 24, 2020 at 4:30PM Place: The Van Rose Drive cul-de-sac, North Haven, CT 06473, USA
You are invited to a street performance that celebrates the brave people at the front lines of the COVID-19 epidemic in the US: the healthcare personnel, the members of vulnerable communities that include undocumented aliens, the workers deemed essential.
Many of them are of Mexican ancestry, and they bring along the spirit of vitality, resourcefulness and bravery.
In LA PIÑATA OF 2020, a trio of lucha libre fighters wages war on the coronavirus. As the virus (represented here by a 4x4x4-foot sculpture) gets destroyed, it releases wildflower seeds that are embedded in the sculpture. The grassy circle, where all this is staged, will, with time, be enriched by blossoming wildflowers.
The mask-clad Van Rose Drive team will be flanked by a mariachi band. The live upbeat rendition of Cielito Lindo shall seal the festive nature of the performance.
