Inspired by the real-life stories of Tarahumara runners, “¡Corre! ¡Corre!” shares the story of a young girl and her coach, who sees her potential as an Olympic competitor. Renowned for their incredible long distance running ability, the Tarahumara are the indigenous people from the northwestern region of Mexico. ¡Corre! ¡Corre!, by Ajai Terrasa Tripathi, uses mythical imagery, dance movement, and poetic narrative to showcase a cultural perspective that inspires athleticism and perseverance.
The show will be offered in two daytime performances for 5th, 6th and 7th graders from Taft Elementary and Taft 7-12, followed by a free community performance at 6:30 pm. Doors will open at 6 pm.
