Alexey Puig Taran – Symbol
From aerial dance and video-art to music, words and improvisation, Guggenheim dance fellow Alexey Puig Taran’s Symbol explores the boundaries of poetry where color, beauty, desire, and faith incorporate us into the cosmic order. Dancers fly, suspended from the ceiling as rain washes down on them in a vivid display of athletic grace.

Choreographer Rosie Herrera recreates dream states through dance, theater, cabaret, opera and surrealism using water as a metaphor for the unconscious. Featuring a cast of 14 dancers, singers, bakers and drag queens and 10 birthday cakes that take you on a vivid journey through dreams and drowning.
