DRAMATIC CONTRADICTIONS

AND, A WOMAN'S FINAL NIGHT

FIRST WEEKEND IS NOW SOLD OUT! EXTENDED RUN DATES ADDED ON DECEMBER 9 & 10.

Mutual Dance Theatre, Cincinnati’s resident Modern Dance company, welcomes guest choreographers GABRIEL MARTINEZ RUBIO and GLENDA NIDAI DE ABREU FIGUEIREDO for the world premieres of “Rojo” and “Nightcap.”

These original commissions are an important part of MDT’s commitment to representation, anchored in 22-23 by a full season honoring Latine voices, stories, and cultures.

The event takes place in MDT’s studio in Hartwell, where the Company has been premiering one-of-a-kind experimental dance theatre to tiny audiences in 360° formation.

ROJO BY JUAN GABRIEL MARTINEZ RUBIO

The former MamLuft&Co. Dance member Gabriel Martinez says “Rojo” (meaning, red) is “related to love, emotion, and passion; warm and contradictory; dramatic and powerful.” Martinez has trained and performed in Mexico, Germany, North Carolina, Virginia, and of course, Ohio.

NIGHTCAP BY GLENDA NIDEAI DE ABREU FIGUEIREDO

“Nightcap” by Glenda Figueiredo brings audiences into the sitting room of a woman experiencing her final night, alone. Moments — both light and dark — come for their last drinks. The Brazilian choreographer is a former aerialist and dancer of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

This performance DOES NOT TAKE PLACE at the Aronoff Center. Mutual Dance Theatre: “Rojo” and “Nightcap” takes place at Mutual Arts Centers HARTWELL (I-75 exit 10), 8222 Monon Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45216. Please click here for more information about the venue.
