Dance, music and theater performances from across Latin America grace the stage at Portland's one and only Latino arts and culture festival, La Luna Nueva, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Among the exciting offerings is a night of Andean Dreams, a world-premiere bringing the region's legends to life through music and dance, as well as the bilingual El Nino Diego, a funny and sweet look at a young Diego Rivera. Then there's Dreamscape, an innovative new play that melds hip hop, spoken word and dance to tell the story of a young woman whose life is cut short by violence. Please see the full event description for more details on the lineup. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Miracle Theatre Group
The Miracle Theatre Group offers you an experience unlike anything else around. See one show, and you’ll have crossed the border to another culture; see a whole season, and you’ll have traveled the globe. Where else can you see live performances of a play by Federico García Lorca in Spanish with English supertitles? Or observe Portland’s longest-running (and bilingual) Day of the Dead celebration? From Afro-Cuban dance theatre to Argentine novelas, from Golden Age classics to world premieres of new work, you’ll find that performances at El Centro Milagro are always vivacious and visually stunning. We believe in experimentation informed by tradition; thinking creatively and acting collaboratively; being irreverent but never irrelevant. We entertain; we give you pause to think, feel and imagine; and, through the cultural lens of latinidad, we embrace the full spectrum of humanity.
