Who would think to blend Christ­mas car­ols with fla­menco mu­sic and present it in the­atri­cal form right af­ter Christ­mas? Teatro Paraguas, that’s who. The bilin­gual per­for­mance com­pany, which has pre­sented a va­ri­ety of pro­duc­tions em­pha­siz­ing sto­ry­telling from here and abroad— in­clud­ing cuen­tos about ghosts and a fa­ble about a ge­net­i­cally pro­duced gi­ant frog that eats peo­ple who wan­der into a prized mar­i­juana field— now of­fers two per­for­mances of La Luz In­ver­nal. The event fea­tures spo­ken word, dance, and po­etry and show­cases the tal­ents of David “El Niño” Briggs, Susannah Gar­rett, and fla­menco troupe Vil­lan­ci­cos. It takes place at 8 p.m. Satur­day, Dec. 26, and 2 p.m. Sun­day, Dec. 27, at Teatro Paraguas Stu­dio, 3221-B Richards Lane. Tick­ets are $15; call 424-1601 or visit teat­roparaguas.org.
