5/11/18 O&A NYC DANCE: Ruddur Dance brings Empowered To Hostos

RudduR Dance, an emerging contemporary ballet company will present Empowered, the company’s first single-billed performance on Friday May 11, 7:30pm at Hostos Center for the Arts and Culture 450 Grand Concourse, Bronx. The concert will showcase the world premiere of Witness: Part I – Yesterday, along with audience favorites The Place Between, A Night in the Life of Us, and Doubt of the Devout. From the physical to the spiritual, Empowered breaks visible and invisible chains that bind, while moving to greater strength.

The multi-talented creative team behind Empowered includes Jamaican-born Choreographer Christopher Rudd, acclaimed Vocalist and Composer Tariq Al-Sabir and Mathieu Leopoldo, Head of Rigging. The evening features a blend of contemporary ballet with theatricality and aerial artistry to create provocative experiences that address timely social and political landscapes. Performers crawl, fly, and leap as they move through aerial silk, bungee restraints, shackles, in search for freedom and a higher order. Empowerment is a partnership with Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture and the CUNY Dance Initiative. For more information and tickets call Box Office (718) 518-4455, or visit http://www.hostos.cuny.edu/culturearts/events/YEAR-2018/may/RudduR-Dance/RudduR%2 0Dance.shtml.
