Ballet Hispánico – CARMEN.maquia

Sat, Feb 1 | 7:30PM

Returning after Dona Peron’s triumphant reception in 2022, Ballet Hispánico brings the premiere of CARMEN.maquia, a Picasso-inspired contemporary take on Bizet’s beloved classic by choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano. The physically charged choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. “Emotionally fierce, intensely sensual, brilliantly danced and stunningly designed…riveting from start to finish.” (Chicago Sun-Times) “Ballet Hispánico shows what it is to be Latino in the modern world.” (Financial Times)

Eduardo Vilaro

Ballet Hispánico was founded on the principle that everyone deserves dance, quality dance training, and innovative performances. In creating the company in 1970, Tina Ramirez shattered a glass ceiling – challenging iconic representations and exposing the joy and celebration to be found in Latindad. Despite its humble origins, Ballet Hispánico immediately served as a catalyst for people in the Latine/x/Hispanic community, especially for Latino youth, to follow their dreams in the cultural world.

Today, as the largest Latino cultural organization in the United States and one of America’s Cultural Treasures, Ballet Hispánico’s three main programs, the Company, School of Dance, and Community Arts Partnerships bring together communities to celebrate the ever growing and multifaceted Hispanic diasporas. Ballet Hispánico’s New York City headquarters provide the space and cultural heart for Latinx dance in the United States. It is a space that expands on Ramirez’s original vision by providing our community the ability to train through dedicated scholarship opportunities, exceptional dance training, inclusive cultural dialogues, and exemplary performances. No matter their background or identity, Ballet Hispánico welcomes and serves all, breaking stereotypes and celebrating the beauty and diversity of Hispanic cultures through dance.
