ALBUQUERQUE, NM: Keshet Dance Company presents "Hevel"
Keshet Dance Company
Keshet’s Director of Programming and Engagement, Ana Lopes Aréchiga, is premiering her newest choreographic work, Hevel. Performed by the Keshet Dance Company and using the Hebrew word for steam, vapor, futility, folly, emptiness, vanity as the title, Hevel is an exploration on patience, honoring the concept of time as a human creation used to define our existence.
"I am inspired by the permanence contrasted by the ephemerality of our experience of never-ending states of waiting, for example through experiences of loss or even our over-awareness of time. It's been fascinating to explore imagery from dreams, states of deep inner focus, and anchoring on experiences of little control, to then find how we can center ourselves in community and our strengths to process and continue growing,” says choreographer Ana Lopes Aréchiga.
Hevel marks the second new full-length company choreographic work from Keshet this year. The Company’s return to an in-person performance season has been supported by multiple local and national funders, including New Mexico Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. As always, Keshet performance tickets are offered at a sliding scale ranging from $0 to full price, to ensure access for all who wish to experience live performance at the Keshet Center for the Arts.
Please be advised masks are required when at Keshet Center for the Arts
