Ballet Hispánico

The venue for this performance was affected by Hurricane Harvey.  A new venue is to be determined.

Ballet Hispánico, a “strong ambassador of not just Latino culture but of dance itself” (Broadway World), brings its bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance with an all-Latina choreographer program for the 2017-2018 season. The engagement features Michelle Manzanales’s Con Brazos Abiertos, an exploration of iconic Mexican symbols that Manzanales was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas; Línea Recta by Belgo-Colombian Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, a work pairing the hallmark passion of flamenco dance with highly inventive and intricate partnering, set to music by flamenco guitarist Eric Vaarzon Morel; and Catorce Dieciséis by Tania Pérez-Salas, one of Mexico’s most noted contemporary choreographers. This program draws upon the innovation and versatility of one of the world’s premier dance companies to capture contemporary Latino culture through movement.
