DESTINO, a dance monologue about identity


Next Monday, November 12, I’ll be taking part in a project called DESTINO, a dance monologue about having no idea where you are from or where you are going and yet, having to choose a direction. The piece is the third part of a North-South-American performance trilogy about dual identity.

DESTINO stars four Latin American actresses who have made the States their home but remain very closely tied to their native countries. The process of the play examines their sense of identity in the face of constant visiting/returning.

This is a work in progress, and we’ll be presenting a 20-minute version of the work we’ve been doing at The Little Theatre at Dixon Place (161A Chrystie St.).

Little Theatre  is an OBIE-winning cutting-edge series (theater, dance, music, performance art, media, robotics, animals — serious fun), curated by Scott Adkins, Rob Erickson, Jeff Jones, Tina Satter & Normandy Sherwood. My piece will be one of 5 shown that day and they should all be potentially weird and fabulous. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15/$10 (student/senior) at the door.

It’s gonna be interesting!
