WASHINGTON, DC: Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre @ Dance Place
In its DC premiere, Make Believe investigates religious upbringing and spiritual practices. How does our introduction to belief systems at an early age influence our romantic experiences? Joined by collaborators David Brick (Dramaturg) and Maiko Matsushima (Costume & Set Design Consultant), Miami-based contemporary choreographer Rosie Herrera answers this question in a magical journey through the inter-spaces between belief, faith, and love.
Awarded a 2017 National Dance Project grant for the creation of Make Believe, Rosie Herrera began this work at Dance Place in her 2016 Alan M. Kriegsman Creative Residency. A Cuban-American dancer, choreographer, and artistic director, Rosie Herrera graduated from New World School and has been commissioned by The Miami Light Project, The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Dance Place, Maui Arts and Cultural Center, Ballet Hispanico, Moving Ground Dance Theater, Houston Met Dance, and the American Dance Festival. With over a decade of experience in both dance, cabaret, and opera, her works are known for their wit, theatricality, and inventiveness.
