Variedades: The Ballad of Ricardo Flores Magón presents this story as the deep roots of the Occupy movement. The performance is inspired by the Mexican variedades shows (variety shows) of 1920 Los Angeles in which Martínez's grandparents were regular performers. The theatrical narrative -- Flores Magón's story -- is performed by hosts Rubén Martínez and Raquel Gutiérrez, who in turn present the show's such guests as Quetzal, Ceci Bastida, Josh Kun, Marisoul Hernandez, The Martínez Del Río Band, and more.
