Men of Rab’inal chronicles the mytho-history of two Mayan prince-warriors and their journey towards the embattled kingdom of Rab’inal. Along the way, Princes K’iche Achi and Rab’inal Achi unwittingly travel through centuries, from the Conquest through the 21st Century, encountering historical foes and allies who accompany them on their epic adventure.
Ancient mythology comes to life in an exciting new drama that examines the history and performance traditions of pre-Colombian indigenous America through the lens of contemporary drama.
Men of Rab'inal will take place May 17th and 18th from 8PM-10PM and on May 19th from 5PM-7PM.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.
