The Apollo Theater in collaboration with Ballet Hispánico presents a trio of works that draw upon the dynamism and versatility of the nation’s premier Latino dance company.
Espiritu Vivo, an exciting collaboration between Ballet Hispánico and Brooklyn- based choreographer Ronald K. Brown, explores the intersection of the African and Latino diasporas in the Caribbean and Latin America.
The unique culture of the Gypsy or "Roma" people, a marginalized community that has journeyed across continents for thousands of years, inspire Spanish choreographer Ramón Oller to create Bury Me Standing.
In Con Brazos Abiertos, her first work for Ballet Hispánico, Michelle Manzanales explores with humility, nostalgia and humor the iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas.
There will be a post-performance artist talkback on Friday December 1, 2017 focused on creating culturally specific dance work.
