Performing Cardboard Stage (excerpt)
Inspired by NYC urban life, Cardboard Stage examines the challenges facing the individual seeking self-worth, meaning, and transformation. The work investigates solitude, intimacy, tension and the human spirit in a mechanical, dystopian-like society. Original music and sound score created by John Philippidis, capture the mood of a grey world, industrial solitude, adding splashes of color with rhythmical percussion, keyboard, and guitar.

Choreography by Julieta Valero
Cancionero is a nostalgic piece that explores the dichotomy of being alone while within a sea of people. That sense of being connected while at the same time feeling very isolated. The movement, combining simple gestures and elaborate choreography , exploits the humanness of the body and its beauty, through a diverse musical backdrop.
