After working for over fifteen years with large groups of dancers, Brooklyn-based, Venezuelan-born choreographer Mariangela López rediscovers her own physicality and psyche in El Regreso (The Return). López explores the solo form in a ritualized dance that transposes the experience of a community onto a single body. Featuring music by Jason Grisell and dramaturgy by Jaime Shearn Coan.
