The Old Globe will present the past two AXIS community-generated theatre pieces from past coLAB workshops at Say San Diego: Hermanas (Sisters) from 2019, and La Visita de la Abuela (The Grandmother's Visit) from 2018.

Favorite binational artist Lou Best will once again give us a spooky musical performance; an altar creation workshop will be taught by returning guest Verónica Burgess; and the event's host, Teaching Artist Valeria Vega, will teach a traditional papel picado workshop.

On The Old Globe's YouTube channel, The Old Globe's website, and The Old Globe and The Old Globe Arts Engagement Facebook pages. Sunday, November 8, 10 a.m. to 12:00 noon PT.

Note: The Old Globe believes that theatre matters, and our mission every day is to make theatre matter to more people. We invite friends, families, and the entire community to celebrate online the great Mexican tradition Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) with a day full of unique activities and artistic expression, as well as the opportunity to enjoy again past performances of community-generated theatre pieces.
