Ballet Hispanico Celebrates Multiple Latin Cultures

March 22, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

MARCH 22 – 24, 2012

Led by Eduardo Vilaro (former artistic director of Luna Negra Dance Theatre and Dance Center Faculty member), Ballet Hispanico explores, preserves and celebrates Latino culture through dance. On the program is Espiritu Vivo, a new work commissioned from African-American choreographer Ronald K. Brown, which investigates the intersection of the African and Latino diasporas in the Caribbean and Latin America, set to a suite of four songs performed by Peruvian singer Susana Baca.

Also on the program is a new work by Vilaro, Asuka, set to music by salsa legend Celia Cruz; Naci, choreographer Andrea Miller’s investigation of the Moorish influences on the Sephardic Jewish culture of Spain; and Locked Up Laura, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s exploration of the human struggle to maintain authenticity in the face of routine.
