Pachuquísmo portrays the female experiences of the 1940s Zoot Suit Riot era through tap dance, Mexican zapateado, live Jazz music, traditional Son Jarocho (from Veracruz, Mexico), and video. With a nine-person, all-female cast donning full zoot suits, the performance challenges gender roles and pulls the narrative of the Zoot Suit Riots out of the male-centered context.

A multi-disciplinary show, Pachuquísmo explores history, culture, and rhythm through the lens of the Mexican American pachucas that American society tried to eradicate.
