The Apollo theater

Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage with its celebrated CARMEN.maquia by Gustavo Ramírez Sansanoon Friday and Saturday, December 7 and 8, 2018 at 8:00pm. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.

A Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet's beloved classic, the physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. Originally created for the Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago, CARMEN.maquia premiered in New York at the Apollo in 2014, the first full-length narrative dance work in Ballet Hispánico's nearly 50-year history.
"In 2012, the Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano gave Bizet's 'Carmen' a dramatic and stylish contemporary dance makeover... Forget that flaming red dress - this version of the Gypsy seducer's tragic tale takes place in a bleak, modernist black-and-white world, where contemporary ballet flirts with flamenco and paso doble."
- Brian Schaefer, The New York Times

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance
The World Premiere of
reeling -> healing
Fall 2018 Season at Triskelion Arts
November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm
Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance presents the World Premiere of reeling -> healing at Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater,106 Calyer Street, (entrance on Banker St,) Brooklyn, NY 11222, from November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm.

reeling -> healing is an exploration of feelings of frustration and helplessness that can occur as a result of the constant barrage of bad news and hatred that reaches our country. This two-part work discusses how audiences deal with these emotions to find solace while taking action. Original music by Kevin Keller adds to a sense of urgency and the need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully formed world. Performers and audience connect via The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge, an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion, that is uncovered in the piece via set elements and audience interaction with text. Furthering thoughts of togetherness, which has been an overarching theme in all past BodyStories pieces, reeling -> healing exposes the more vulnerable sides of ourselves through dance.

Tickets are $18 in advance ($22 at the door) and are available at

Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater | 106 Calyer Street,

What does Utopia mean to you? Is it a physical, external place-or, might it reside internally?
Choreographed by Valerie Green and in collaboration with visual artist Keren Anavy with original music by Mark Katsaounis, VG/DE's newest evening length work, Utopia, explores the idea of a perfect place through dance and visual art. The work questions whether Utopia might be an internal place, investigated through personal and intimate moments and alongside the community.
