Event Description

Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the preeminent Latino dance institution in the United States, will perform as part of the 18th edition of Fire Island Dance Festival.  The company will present A Verme, a World Premiere piece, developed with acclaimed choreographer Edwaard Liang.

 

Edwaard Liang’s first work for Ballet Hispanico, a duet set to the lush music of Ezio Bosso, explores the concept of intimacy and the push and pull of energy that connects two individuals as A Verme or "Into Me See". The piece follows the tension and release of a timeless attraction between two lovers outside of time and space.

 

The piece will be danced by Ballet Hispanico Company members Vanessa Valecillos and Jamal Rashann Callender.
