Description

Lucha Teotl is a new production from Prism Movement Theater featuring a mix of local Dallas acting talent and local luchadores, or wrestlers. Prism’s goal is to respectfully reflect the high drama and rich cultural history of lucha in a theatrical narrative. They are working with seasoned lucha libre performers in authentically creating the production to represent the community and the craft of this popular entertainment. Part of the Elevator Project 2021.

Lucha Teotl delivers a high-energy lucha experience that is sure to please both long-time fans and excited newcomers to lucha wrestling. In this awe-inspiring performance, audiences will enter a Lucha ring to watch wrestlers wearing the masks of Aztec gods play out a sincere and exciting wrestling plot.

The story, presented in English and Spanish, will follow a young rambunctious male wrestler from the Sun God family named Huitzi (short for Huītzilōpōchtli) teaming up with a more experienced female wrestler from the Moon god family named Coyol (short for Coyolxauhqui) to become the top luchadors in the Lucha Teotl Alliance.

But will Huitzi and Coyol be able put aside their ancient families rivalry, or will the cycle of violence prove to be unbreakable?
