Ballet Hispanico Carmen.Maquia says
Jones Hall

Founded by Tina Ramirez and led by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, Ballet Hispanico explores, preserves and celebrates Latino cultures through dance. For its return to Houston, the company will perform its first full-length narrative work – Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia. Riveting from start to finish, this work is a bold and electrifying reimagining of Georges Bizet’s iconic opera about a passionate gypsy. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with hints of Spanish paso doble and flamenco, while a stunning set design by Luis Crespo and minimalist black-and-white costumes by fashion designer David Delfin evoke the paintings of Pablo Picasso. The Company holds a rich and diverse repertory of more than 100 works by the foremost choreographers and artists of our time. The works expand on founder Tina Ramirez’s legacy of exploring the diversity of Latino culture through a fusion of classical, Latin and contemporary dance powered by theatricality and passion.
