Ballet Hispánico will “whisk us away to contemporary dance’s hottest spot“ (Washington Post) in this imaginative, theatrical showcase of Latin-inspired contemporary dance at its best. In Club Havana, which premiered live in 2000, the intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, himself a native of Cuba. In CARMEN.maquia, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano offers a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet’s classic opera. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, the work is riveting from start to finish. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. This is an encore presentation of the 2015 Lincoln Center at the Movies broadcast.
