Event Details

Dance NOW! Miami, Florida’s leading contemporary dance company returns to the Broward Center for a live, in person performance after the COVID-19 crisis presenting two powerful world premieres and an historic reconstruction. "Dorian’s Reflection” is a contemporary treatment of Oscar Wilde's iconic novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. The ballet, choreographed by Baumgarten & Salterini, with an original score by internationally recognized composer Davidson Jaconello, explores the themes of fear, loneliness, loss, and moral deterioration, embodied in Dorian and his relationship to his image. The dance work updates the narrative to our modern time of selfies and social media, plastic surgery, Tinder and Grinder. Other works on the program include "Anusim, what is hidden is never lost,” also from Salterini & Baumgarten, inspired by the 1497 decree in Portugal forcing all Jews to be baptized as "New Christians," but allowing them to practice their own religion in secret, and "La Malinche," the first piece José Limón choreographed for his own company in 1947. It is based on the real life story of an indigenous Nahua woman who played a key role in the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, and is a legendary character in Mexican cultural history. This evening of dance is not to be missed!
