Alpha Omega Theatrical Dance Company

Posted by audreyross

Alpha Omega Theatrical Dance Company celebrates its 35th anniversary with a program of works by Eleo Pomare and artistic director Enrique Cruz DeJesus. The 15-member ensemble will appear in Pomare's 1967 "Las Desenamoradas," set to music by Coltrane and based on Lorca's "House of Bernada Alba." Also by Pomare is his 1994 "Radeau" (Raft), in which he depicts a stormy sea voyage of three women fleeing strife-torn Haiti. Donna Clark will repeat her stunning performance of Pomare's "Narcissus Rising," the leather & chains cyclist solo that helped propel the choreographer into the forefront of modern dance in 1968. DeJesus will present the world premiere of his "Mending Minds," inspired by caretakers and asking the question "who will care for the caring?" Also by DeJesus is his delicious "Evolution," a playful romp to the irresistible rhythms of Tito Puente. Saturday night at 8 PM; Sunday at 3 PM
