Using movement and storytelling, Napako depicts and interprets a creation story from our city’s ancient indigenous history. The play looks specifically at the Blue Hole — the head of the San Antonio River and long an important practical and spiritual place — and one young man’s journey to discover its greatness when faced with its current dried-up state.
It’s a powerful production that calls all San Antonians to re-contextualize our sense of place and belonging in terms of our oldest shared mythologies, our intimate relationship to the natural resources of the area, and our common longings and fears.
$5, Sat Sept 22, 8pm, Confluence Park, 310 W. Mitchell St., (210) 212-8666, saysi.org.
