“MAGA” - Lexi Theodore May 17, 2019 | LexTheodore | More on General
“Only higher we shall go” or MAGA, they say. With Division our only constant, are…truly progressing? I felt a strong pull to create this piece during our current infrastructure. My hopes are to reach a more global audience and provide a visual interpretation - to start conversation and maybe even create change. A narrative, a hyperbole, or a call to action; it’s up to the viewer to decide.Read More
"Mi Triste Palomar" April 11, 2019 | emigdiojk | More on Modern
“Mi Triste Palomar” is a choreographic work to the song “La Muerte del Palomo” by…Durcal. This piece is a tribute to family, culture, and life. The narrative of this thematic work is driven by the artistic interpretation of pain and grief caused by the loss of a loved one, created from the perspective of a queer Latinx male. Each one of the six dancers wears a unique black dress made of light fabric facilitating the illusion of softness, while representing the bleakness of a funeral. They also wear white metal filigree skull masks for the first half of the piece to represent the lurking promise of death. The movement vocabulary originated from an unplanned but productive improv session that was filmed in order to capture the raw emotion present at the time; It was a result of the nature and nurture of a foreign culture, and the sense of novelty from the formal training in Modern, Jazz, and Ballet in the US. Choreographically, it is aesthetically dynamic, expressive, and dramatic. The mariachi music and the vocals in Spanish add to the drama and the individual character's roles. Moreover, the musicality is a vital component in this work, and serves as the constant heartbeat of the story, allowing for colorful imagery and rhythmic transitions. “The original inspiration for this work were the events that followed my grandma’s surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer. The chemotherapy treatment was overwhelming and it was killing her. My mother told me that grandma had said herself that she felt ‘defeated’. The news were overwhelming for me. I felt hopeless and the outlet I found in order to cope with the pain was to move. So, I played “La Muerte del Palomo” by Rocio Durcal, which was the song that was playing when my mom told me. And I just danced and cried over and over until I exhaustion set in. I ended up filming some of it, and a lot of that improvised movement became part of the actual piece. The song’s lyrics reveal the fatal and self-destructive suffering of a male dove caused by the absence of his dead female partner.” -Emigdio This piece was created in the fall of 2018. It was featured in the UA School of Dance’s last season show; that fall’s student choreography showcase, titled Student Spotlight – Interiors, which had five official performance dates. The original cast included Erina Ueda (lead/soloist), Vivianna DeSantiago, Megan Garcia, Madison Mistone, Jada Pearman, and Sandy Strangis. Premiered: November 30th, 2018, Stevie Eller Dance Theatre, University of Arizona School of Dance, Tucson, AZ Music: “La Muerte del Palomo” written by Juan Gabriel, performed by Rocio DurcalRead More

“Unspoken Words” is a dance film about the thin veil between light and dark, between…spiritual and physical world, between pain and ecstasy. Is it about suffering — or the release from suffering?
