On December 1 and 2 Ballet Hispánico, in collaboration with the Apollo Theater presented Bury Me Standing, Espiritu Vivo and Con Brazos Abiertos.
These three inspiring works reflect on the migrant experience, the tragedy of marginalization and the resilience and triumph of the human spirit to capture contemporary Latino culture through movement. The performances were sponsored by support from Goya Foods.
There were post-performance artist talkbacks with choreographers Ron Brown and Michelle Manzanales moderated by Ballet Hispánico’s Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro. The artists shared with the audience their vision foe the ballets and the creative process.
