Dance NOW MiamiMakes Broward Center Debut 5/17/19

Dance NOW MiamiMakes Broward Center Debut
Friday, 05/17/2019 – 08:08 pm – 11:07 pm
Broward Center for the Performing Arts
201 SW 5th Ave,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33312
Buy Tickets
Cost: 35

Friday, May 17 at 8: Dance NOW! Miami comes to the Broward Center with four works: Bridges NOT Walls, The Shifting Weight of Water, (B)Orgia: Decadence and Decay, and Fire Within, Fire Without: Dido on the Pyre.

Bridges are both symbols of cooperation and communication, as well as a real means of allowing people to move from one place to another, across a divide. When one of South Florida’s leading dance companies, Dance NOW! Miami, performs for the first time at the Broward Center’s Amaturo Theater, both meanings of the word will be invoked. Taking as its jumping off point the recent political struggles and turmoil that have divided America, Bridges NOT Walls, choreographed by Dance NOW! Artistic Directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten, is an investigation of the human condition. “Differences among people cause us to fear one another, separating us, instead of allowing us to find common ground,” says Baumgarten. Inspired by the Barack Obama quote – “We must guard against a tribalism that is built on us against them” – the work explores ways to overcome these natural instincts and to find compassion for one another in a diverse society.

The evening also features three other signature works from Dance NOW!, including the world premiere of Salterini’s The Shifting Weight of Water, a poetic ensemble work for six members of the company, built around the music of South African composer Phillip Miller. Two Broward premieres round out the program: Baumgarten and Salterini’s jointly created (B)ORGIA: Decadence & Decay was inspired by the real life story of the famous Italian Renaissance-era family, and Baumgarten’s Fire Within, Fire Without: Dido on the Pyre a collaboration with composer Federico Bonacossa.

WHEN: Friday, May 17 at 8:00 pm
WHERE: Broward Centter Amaturo Theater, 201 SW Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale
ADMISSION: $35 general admission, $15 students and seniors. Advance tickets at BrowardCenter.org or Ticketmaster.com; by phone at 954.462.0222 or the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office.
