Aquiles Va Un Cuento/The Treasure of Aquiles


Aquiles is a hungry boy who leaves his barren town (empty of dance, song and stories) to find nourishment. Along  his travels, he learns to sing from a bee, the joy of rhythm from a horse, and to play from a snail.  Aquiles brings his stories, songs, games, folk dances and rhymes in Spanish back to teach to his pueblo. He realizes that he doesn’t just need more vitamin T (for tacos, tlayudas, tortas...) to feel satisfied; he and his people also need a good dose of vitamin S (songs, stories and sabiduría). Bilingual and participatory!
