Cindy Cox and John Campion

on The Road to Xibalba

Husband and wife creative team Cindy Cox and John Campion discuss the Road to Xibalba, their setting of The Popol Vuh, the ancient Mayan myth of creation. The excerpt tells the story of two brothers who travel to the underworld, ultimately challenging the gods of death to a ball game. The work is an imaginative and whimsical tableau of music, dance, and electronic soundscapes portraying an enchanted world of legends come to life.

Snapshot is your opportunity to see new works from established and emerging West Coast composers in an intimate concert setting.
