Dance NOW! Miami kicks off its thirteenth season of entertaining, inspiring and educating with Fall For Dance NOW! from its home at the Little Haiti Cultural Center. The concert will feature the world premiere of Diego Salterini’s “Oceanica”, an underwater journey through dance.
After years as a competitive swimmer, and over a decade in Florida, Salterini has been inspired by the weightlessness of the underwater experience, the fluidity and swirling of the ocean’s ebbs and flows, and the mysteries that lay hidden in its waters. He is joined by architect and dancer Elizabeth Camargo to create a set, which will transform the stage into a magical and fantastical undersea environment hosting Salterini’s breathtaking dance-imagery.
Rounding out the show is the return of audience favorite and Dance NOW! Directors’ collaboration, “Night Run” inspired by true stories of children escaping the Nazi occupation, and a new work by Hannah Baumgarten entitled “Sirens”, her newest contemporary ballet exposing emotional and sensual strengths and sensitivities of womanhood.
Admission is $20 general and $10 students and seniors. Tickets might be purchased at the door and are also available online at www.dancenowmiami.org. Visit the website for more information about the company or visit http://vimeo.com/28559247 for a 30 second promo.
