The Student Life Multicultural Center presents: Cuentame Coyote | Play Written & Directed By Danel Malan Journey through cold and dark desert nights with two cousins desperately dreaming of a better future beyond the iron fence that marks la frontera. Fleeing sorrow and hopelessness, they follow coyotes with two legs and four, stepping over dried bones scorched by the sun, chased by the wind that murmurs tales of Santa Muerte. Amid the dangers that lurk, ready to pounce, in that arid expanse they risk their lives with no one to trust but each other. Will their steps lead to the dreams they seek or vanish in the desert sands like so many before? Cuentame Coyote was developed after an intensive research trip to the Tohono Odham reservation in Arizona. Sacred stories combined with migrant tales of the dangers of dehydration, snake bite and scorpions in the desolate 100 degree desert heat fuel the storyline of this new Milagro work. Erubiel Valladares joins Milagro this season in the title role of Coyote. Ajai Terrazas Tripathi and Alida Holquan Wilson-Gunn are the two cousins and Mariel Sierra plays various roles.
