Epiphany Productions presented “ACTIONPhiles 24th & Florida” in front of the mural “Untitled” by Jonathan Matas, at the 3rd Annual Baile en la Calle: The Mural Dances, a community celebration in honor of Ralph Maradiaga.

Baile en la Calle is a tour—guided by a Precita Eyes docent—of the historic murals along the 24th Street corridor brought to life through performances by local choreographers and dance companies. This year’s program was presented by the Calle 24 Cultural District Arts Consortium and was a collaborative celebration honoring Chicano Artist and Empressario Ralph Maradiaga.

The tour visited murals around Florida and 24th Street and ended at the 24th Street mini-park, where an unveiling of a restored Ralph Maradiaga mural and a re-dedication of the mini-park as “Ralph Maradiaga Park” followed at 3pm.  Performances by Epiphany Productions, Cuicacalli Dance Company, Cuicacalli Escuela de Danza, Loco Bloco, guest choreographer Rebecca Cervantes & Moving Beyond Productions culminating with a community dance with live music by Familia Pena-Govea.
