CONTEMPORANEA 2019 Featuring (B)ORGIA: Decadence & Decay
Saturday, Mar 30, 2019 at 8:30 PM - English
Tickets: $35 General / $15 Students (box office only)
The corrupting influence of power and the lurid underbelly of society might seem like dark and heavy themes for a dance performance. But coming from South Florida’s leading contemporary company, Dance NOW! Miami, and in today’s political climate, their newest evening on Saturday, March 30, at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Arts Center, promises to be another fascinating and forward-leaning one. Program II will feature the world premiere of (B)ORGIA: Decadence & Decay, inspired by the real life story of the famous Italian Renaissance-era family, choreographed by Dance Now Artistic Co-Directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten. The program will also include a reconstruction of Daniel Lewis’ classic There’s Nothing Here of Me But Me; and the world premiere of Baumgarten’s Fire Within, Fire Without: Dido on the Pyre; and an as yet untitled world premiere piece from Salterini.
