Contradanza and Rosanna Gamson/World Wide

Contradanza and Rosanna Gamson/World Wide :Aura

US Premiere
A presentation of The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series.

Mexico City's acclaimed contemporary dance company Contradanza collaborates with Los Angeles choreographer Rosanna Gamson and her company World Wide to premiere a new international collaboration. The evening-length dance theater piece is inspired by Mexican author Carlos Fuentes' famous novella Aura, a ghost story set in a labyrin-thine unnamed city. RG/WW, in collaboration with Mexican choreographer Cecilia Appleton and her company Contradanza, merge movement, bilingual text and evocative theatrical images to explore the duality of Latino and Anglo cultures in Los Angeles.

RG/WW and Contradanza are both highly regarded in their respective communities of Los Angeles and Mexico City. Now they take the next step in this new project partly commissioned by REDCAT.

Funded in part by the National Dance Project and Cultural Contact, the U.S.-Mexico Foundation for Culture.
