Cookie’s Kid is a solo dance theater work that explores what is inherited muscle memory. Herrera interprets her experience growing up with a-tough-as nails Bronx mother and a counter-revolutionary Cuban refugee father, by delving deeply into ecstatic movement to discover what information her body holds about her cultural history. Exploring iconic cultural references ranging from La Lupe, to Chuck Norris, to Walter Mercado as well as utilizing Afro-Cuban dance and Trance Dance as the framework for movement, Rosie investigates how these seemingly unrelated idols are connected by themes of rebellion, strength, and vulnerability.
