Don’t miss another uniquely Austin theater tradition — the Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance’s annual Sembrando Herencia production. “Mi Tierra Boricua,” written by the group’s executive and artistic director Ana María Tekina-eirú Maynard with help from community elders in Puerto Rico, brings oral history to the stage through music, dance and theater.

“Mi Tierra Boricua” tells the dramatic, adventurous tale of what happens when people of a mountain tobacco community leave in search of a better life. The production features the poetry of Puerto Rican poet Julia de Burgos and is written in English, Spanish and Taíno.

“Mi Tierra Boricua” runs Dec. 5-6 at the George Washington Carver Museum’s Boyd Vance Theatre. Opening night starts at 6:30 p.m.; Dec. 6 show is at 3 p.m. Advance tickets can be purchased online at casita.prfdance.org/sembrando2015 and are $15 for adults and $5 for children 3-12 years old.
