Choreographic Explorations, November 2014

ZEST COLLECTIVE Contemporary Performance Art is moving forward with a new production entitled:  “SOMEONE SPECIAL - Lorca in New York.”  The work will be a response to the tragic execution of Spanish Poet Federico García Lorca and will explore themes of gypsy culture, surrealism, and Federico’s fond appreciation of African American spirituals developed during his many years in the heart of Harlem.

Unlike his traditional Spanish culture, New York gave Federico his first experience of somewhere foreign - his first glimpse of huge urban crowds and a democratic, uprooted populace as varied and restless as a kaleidoscope.

Tune in to November’s Choreographic Explorations!
