Ritmo Jondo - Aventura Arts & Cultural Center

Friday, Mar 24, 2017 at 8:30 PM - English

Dance Now! Miami presents Doris Humphrey's 1953 Masterpiece, Ritmo Jondo, performed to the tantalizing Spanish rhythms of Catalan born composer Carlos Surinach.

With swirling, cascading motions for the women and vibrating, thrusting steps and gestures for the men, this work stes up a counterpoint of masculinity and femininity that has had significant impat on modern dance and has powerful contemporary meaning. Daniel Lewis, Miami's own internatonally acclaimed dance luminary will introduce the work each time it is performed, sharing his rich coiffure of stories and anecdotes to make the experience one to remember.

Show more >>

This pioneering work of modern dance was choreographed by Doris Humphrey in 1953 for the Jose Limon Dance Company and has been reconstructed on Dance NOW! by Daniel Lewis, Miami dance luminary, with suppoert from the National Endowment for the Arts and Funding Arts Network. Ritmo Jondo is ready seen and has never been performed in South Florida, and combined with the Folkloric and Latin elements of this work, will wow contemporary dance auidences and dance historians alike.

Citizen with Reggie Wilson Fist & Heel Performance Group

Apr 21, 2017 & Apr 22, 2017 - at 8:30 PM - English

Noted NYC-based choreographer Reggie Wilson brings his dance company, Fist and Heel Performance Group, to Miami-Dade County Auditorium On.Stage Black Box to perform CITIZEN. In this work, Wilson asks, "What does it mean to belong?" and "What does it mean to NOT want to belong?", core questions of Reggie's investigations for this new evening-length dance work. In Citizen, Wilson drills down into the human desire to belong with exponentially expanding questions: "Do the injustices in today's America engender a feeling of belonging? What supports belonging? Is belonging solely something internal, inside the individual? Is a sense of belonging or not belonging, a private or a public matter?" CITIZEN promises to engage and compel while igniting perspectives on our compassion and humanity.

"Citizen drove its heart-stoppingly relentless message home without firing a shot or saying a word." The Philadelphia Enquirer.
