La Llorona is based on the Urban Legend originating in Mexico. The tale is that of The Weeping Woman, an infamous apparition who searches for her children and is known to cause grave misfortune to any living person who sees her. Pandemic Collective’s telling of this folktale will be expanded, warped, and twisted through the incorporation of live music, movement, and dance elements.
