A distant train whistle blows, an echo of the accident that sets Alebrijes: A Día de Muertos Tale into motion. Faced with the tragic death of his brother in a derailment, famed artist Pedro Linares Lopez seek an audience with La Muerte, the personification of death. In the jungle-world between life and death, Pedro encounters the Alebrijes, the whimsical spirit animals that guide the dead into the afterlife.

This soundscape, created for Alebrijes: A Día de Muertos Tale, plays during intermission while the crew transforms the set into the steamy jungle between the worlds of the living and the dead.

Opens at Milagro theatre in Portland on Friday, October 19, 2018.
