Ballet Hispanico will "whisk us away to contemporary dance"s hottest spot" (Washington Post) in this imaginative and theatrical showcase of Latin-inspired dancing at its best. In Club Havana, the intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, himself a native of Cuba. Hailed as a "masterpiece" by the Chicago Sun-Times, Gustavo RamArez Sansano"s CARMEN.maquia is a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet"s classic opera about a passionate gypsy. Riveting from start to finish, the physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. Lincoln Center at the Movies brings exceptional artistic performances to local movie theaters, with its first series, Great American Dance, offering a larger-than-life experience with some of America"s most inspiring dance companies.
