This is one of the first dance pieces to address these issues. It will also include an encore performance of Doris Humphrey's classic, flamenco inspired Ritmo Jondo, restaged by Miami's own dance legend Daniel Lewis, which El Nuevo Herald called, "A clear achievement and an artistic milestone."

Ballet Flamenco La Rosa presents La Casa de la Muñeca

Saturday, Apr 1, 2017 various times - Spanish

Ballet Flamenco La Rosa, an international Flamenco company based in Miami, will present the World Premiere Flamenco Ballet, La Casa de la Muneca, inspired by the classic Scandinavian play A Doll's House. Originally a three-act prose play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, LaCasa de La Muñeca is conceived and created by Ballet Flamenco La Rosa's renowned artistic director Ilisa Rosal, and will star distinguished guest dancers from Spain La Sentio, Oscar De Los Reyes and Eloy Aguilar. Singer Alicia Morales and guitarist Israel Heredia compose and perform the live music that creates the canvas to paint the characters, conflicts and drama of this magnificent work.

The central figure of this timeless story is Nora, a young woman pampered and controlled by her father, and then by her husband, Torvald, who thinks of her as childlike, calling her his little songbird and his doll. Nora has forged her father's signature in order to borrow a large sum of money so that her husband can recuperate from a serious illness. Krogstad, the person from whom Nora has borrowed the money, is relieved of his position at the bank by Torvald, for having been disgraced for committing a similar crime himself in the past. Krogstad threatens to reveal Nora's crime and thus disgrace her and her husband, unless Nora can convince her husband not to fire him. When Torvald discovers that Nora forged her father's name, he is ready to disclaim his wife, even though she did it to save his life. This makes her question all of her beliefs, including whether her husband is worthy of her love. She is pushed to an extreme act of desperation.

"This passionate and dramatic work lends itself well to the breathtaking power of Flamenco", says Ilisa Rosal, "With its exquisite vocals and guitar melodies, electrifying footwork, spellbinding athleticism and elegant grace, Flamenco is at once sensual and spiritual, raw and refined, and a compelling way to tell this story of love, loyalty, duty, desperation, betrayal, revenge, jealousy, family, friendship, honor, suffering and loss. As an artist, I have always been drawn to strong and beautifully written characters in literature and theatre, seeking opportunities to explore the emotion and psychology of our human condition. The four central characters of this play are complex and captivating, giving us powerful images of how society can impact the individual, and providing great potential for creativity in music and dance. Considering recent political issues, the work is as relevant today as it was at the time of its premiere in 1879, when it created great controversy because it challenged the accepted norms of the day and exhorted the audience to reassess the values of society and accept social responsibility."

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.

Momentum brings its children’s programs to Miami Beach with four events at the Miami Beach Regional Library. Momentum, under the leadership ofArtistic Director Delma Iles, is nationally recognized for its outstanding children’s programs. The Coral Gables series has been standing room only for many years.

All performances are followed by a movement workshop for kids in the audience and dancers pose for photos with the kids after the show. Workshops activities are created around topics introduced in the performances. “The best way to understand and appreciate dance is by participating in it”, explains Iles. “Our young audiences grow from creating movement with the guidance of the dancers.” Workshops culminate in a mini-performance by the participating kids.
