Ballet Hispánico

ANNABELLE LOPEZ OCHOA Tiburones
MICHELLE MANZANALES Con Brazos Abiertos
ANDREA MILLER Nací

Founded 50 years ago, New York’s pioneering Ballet Hispánico makes its Cal Performances debut with a bold program of new and recent works by acclaimed and up-and-coming women choreographers. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Tiburones (Sharks) critiques the racial and gender stereotypes portrayed in West Side Story; and Andrea Miller’s Nací draws on the choreographer’s Spanish and Jewish American heritage to explore Sephardic culture. Michelle Manzanales’ Con Brazos Abiertos (With Open Arms)—which has impressed critics with its combination of vitality and warmth—addresses the complexities of Mexican American identity. “The members of Ballet Hispánico are 12 of the most technically accomplished and musical dancers you’ll find in the contemporary sphere” (The Washington Post).
