The Apollo Theater

November 22-23, 2019
The Power of the Latina Voice

In an evening of works that deconstruct stereotypes and delve into cultural identity, Ballet Hispánico returns to the Apollo Theater featuring the choreographic stylings of three leading female voices in dance. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Tiburones will make its world premiere addressing the stereotypes placed upon Latinx culture and the power the media has in appropriating these themes by diminishing the voices of Latinx artists. Drawing from the multiplicity of her Spanish and Jewish-American background, Andrea Miller employs her distinctive movement language to search for a new sense of home. Con Brazos Abiertos takes a fun and frank look at life caught between two cutlures providing an authentic voice to the immigrant experience through the perspective of choreographer, Michelle Manzanales.
