Cal Performances welcomes New York’s pioneering—and electrifying!—Ballet Hispánico in its Berkeley debut, with a vibrant program of Bay Area premieres by an intergenerational cadre of choreographers who have been part of the company’s rich 50-year history.
Batucada Fantástica is Vicente Nebrada’s homage to the energy of Brazilian Carnival; and Gustavo Ramírez Sansano created 18+1 to celebrate his personal career milestone of making work for 18 years, his choreography energized and inspired by the mambo music by Pérez Prado. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa critiques the portrayal of women and Puerto Ricans in West Side Story; in her critically acclaimed work Con Brazos Abiertos (With Open Arms).
“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).
