ROJO and NIGHTCAP
Mutual Dance Theatre
Mutual Arts Center [Hartwell]
These original commissions are an important part of MDT’s commitment to representation, anchored in 22-23 by a full season honoring Latine voices, stories, and cultures.
ROJO By Juan Gabriel Martinez Rubio
The former MamLuft&Co. Dance member Gabriel Martinez says ROJO (meaning, red) is “related to love, emotion, and passion; warm and contradictory; dramatic and powerful.” Martinez has trained and performed in Mexico, Germany, North Carolina, Virginia, and of course, Ohio.
NIGHTCAP by Glenda Nideai De Abreu Figueiredo
NIGHTCAP brings audiences into the sitting room of a woman experiencing her final night, alone. Moments — both light and dark — come for their last drinks. The Brazilian choreographer is a former aerialist and dancer of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
