Noche de Oro – A Celebration of 50 Years!

VICENTE NEBRADA Arabesque (Bay Area Premiere; 1984; music by Enrique Granados)
ANNABELLE LOPEZ OCHOA Tiburones (2019; music by Pérez Prado, Dizzy Gillespie, and The Funky Lowlives)
GUSTAVO RAMÍREZ SANSANO 18+1 (2012; music by Pérez Prado)

Cal Performances welcomes New York’s pioneering—and electrifying!—Ballet Hispánico in its Berkeley debut, with a vibrant program by an intergenerational cadre of choreographers who have been part of the company’s rich 50-year history. 

Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s 18+1, energized and inspired by the mambo music of Pérez Prado, celebrates the choreographer’s personal career milestone of making work for 18 years; Vicente Nebrada’s Arabesque is an elegant suite of dances; and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa critiques the portrayal of Latinx stereotypes in the media, offering an authentic perspective in her critically acclaimed work, Tiburones.

“The Manhattan company—committed to exploring the Latino experience through movement—is flourishing. It has a small group of powerful dancers from multinational backgrounds, bound together by intense focus and distinctive clarity” (Los Angeles Times).

Patron Sponsors: Daniel Johnson and Herman Winkel
