ROSIE HERRERA

Cuban-American dancer, choreographer and artistic director based in Miami

Project: Make Believe – Dance Theater Piece

Period: May 2020

Make Believe uses religious iconography to explore themes of love and romance. In it Rosie explores religious spectacle and how these rituals are unified by themes of paganism, magic and celebrity worship. The piece deconstructs what it means to believe in magic and how that bleeds into our constructions of spirituality and our understanding of romance.

AIR at The Light Box
