Description

Choreographer Gabriela Estrada will present the solo "Not a Single Carmen More!" (Ni Una Carmen Mas!), performed by dramatic dancer Ivanka Figueroa, as part of "Mourning Loss/Celebrating Survival," a program designed to raise awareness of the scourge of domestic violence. Similar projects will take place on October 5th in states around the country. Inspired by Merimee's novel, Estrada notes that "Carmen is one of the most represented stories of domestic violence in theatrical arts." The program will also feature performances by Vissi Dance Theatre, solo dancer Sonali Skandan, musician Jeannine Otis, and storytellers Regina Ress and Joy Kelly.
