Cuerpo Sano, Vida Sana (Sound Body, Healthy Life)

Considering the great need to improve the level of health, nutrition, and hygiene of Latino children, this engaging puppet play provides important lessons in a very accessible way, including a number of catchy songs with Latin rhythms.

Children sing along with Dr. Dominguez (a puppet) and Maestra Patricia as they are joined by Dentista Daniel. Also joining them are the Three Temptations (las Tres Tentaciones) of fat, sugar and salt. They try to lure the children to eat junk food, but then a sick stomach sings a sad Tango and demonstrates the consequences of eating such food. With a danceable Corrido, the play ends by emphasizing the importance of eating health foods in accordance with the new food plate.

This presentation is part of the Sor Juana Festival, which serves to honor one of Mexico’s greatest writers, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, as well as to celebrate and showcase the rich artistic accomplishments of Mexican women from Mexico and the United States. The Festival also honors Mexican women leaders as a testimony to the enduring spirit of Sor Juana.

This event is free, however registration is required.
