BALLET HISPANICO

Genre: Dance

Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance organization since 1970, returns to The Joyce Theater from April 15-27, 2014 with 15 performances featuring four dynamic programs. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now. 

 

The extraordinary lineup of works, curated by Eduardo Vilaro in his fourth year as Artistic Director of Ballet Hispanico, features El Beso, a stunning world premiere by Spanish native Gustavo Ramírez Sansano with original costumes by internationally renowned fashion designer Angel Sanchez.  Other highlights include three Joyce premieres: Sombrerísimo, Belgo-Colombian Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s athletic tour de force for six male dancers; Umbral, Edgar Zendejas’s seductive interpretation of the beloved Mexican celebration “Día de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead); and Eduardo Vilaro’s Hogar, a moving meditation on immigrant identity and the meaning of home set to live music by masterful Russian composer Ljova (Program B only).  Nacho Duato’s masterwork Jardi Tancat, the Joyce premiere of Edwaard Liang's lush duet A Verme, and repertory favorites from Vilaro and Lopez Ochoa round out the colorful season.
