About Ballet Hispánico
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 discrimination and 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 investigates remembering lost and found homelands in Nací. Con Brazos Abiertos takes a fun and frank look at life caught between two cultures providing an authentic voice to the immigrant experience from choreographer, Michelle Manzanales.
