​Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre enthusiastically invites you to a special performance of our 2020 Concert honoring long-time friend of the company Sandra McNaughton.

This special performance is the one opportunity to see our 2020 new work in full production LIVE - an occasion as special as the woman we honor!

Concert will include four new pieces responding to and utilizing social distancing.

- AMERICAN CATRACHO and ROOT (updated excerpts) – We are reimagining sections of these critically acclaimed audience favorites informed by the current times. AMERICAN CATRACHO Directed and Curated 2016-2019 by Wilfredo Rivera featuring choreography by Christian Denice and Noelle Kayser ; ROOT created 2018-2019 by Monique Haley and Joe Cerqua

- IDENTITY CITY – Directed and Curated by Wilfredo Rivera, featuring choreography by Shannon Alvis, Katlin Bourgeois, A. Raheim White and music by Joe Cerqua - an examination of evolving concepts and acceptance (or not) of gender identity (year one of a four-year process) – This year’s work focuses on feelings of isolation and metamorphosis

- MOOD SWING – Artistic Director Wilfredo Rivera will lead three choreographers (Shannon Alvis, Katlin Bourgeois, Monique Haley) and composer Joe Cerqua in developing duets between musicians and dancers that respond to the current pandemic crisis and social justice movement

Seating will be limited and social distancing and other safety measures will be in place.

Tickets $100 / person
