Pentimento, homage to Venezuelan choreographer Vicente Nebrada.
[From press release]
Pentimento, created by choreographer Vicente Nebrada, includes excerpts from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Four Suites for Orchestra. The ballet is a bold, abstract work that is based on the art form of painting called pentimento. The artist changes his or her mind about the composition of his painting during the process of painting, and then changes it. This ballet applies the same approach to dance: the concept for the dances and costumes change throughout the performance. Using masks, flowing fabric and creative lighting to create a mystical effect, the piece develops through layers of movement, color and light. Adding to mystical effects is original costuming by Cristina Gianinni.
Shows are October 12,13 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts – Amaturo Theater; and October 19 & 20 at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center
