The power of the Latina voice.

Ballet Hispanico
, the nation's preeminent Latino dance company and "a staple of the American cultural scene"(The Denver Post) returns to the Apollo Theater to celebrate the power of the Latina voice with works by all female choreographers. This season includes the world premiere of Anabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones, as well as the return of Nací by Andrea Miller and Michelle Manzanales' Con Brazos Abiertos. 

Program:

Tiburones
In the world premiere of Tiburones, Ochoa addresses the discrimination and stereotypes placed upon Latinx culture and the power the media has in portraying these themes by diminishing the voices of Latinx artists. . Ochoa will deconstruct gender roles and identity to revitalize an authentic perspective of Puerto Rican icons appropriated within the entertainment industry.

Nací

In this restaging of Nací (2009), choreographer Andrea Miller draws from the duality of her Spanish and Jewish-American background and employs her distinctive movement style to investigate the Sephardic culture of Spain, with its Moorish influence and profound sense of community, despite hardship.

Con Brazos Abiertos

Con Brazos Abiertos (2017)  is a fun and frank look at a life caught between two cultures. Michelle Manzanales utilizes iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas, to speak to the immigrant experience. Intertwining folkloric representations with humor and music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to Rock en Español, the work brings life to a Latino dilemma.
