May 6 at 7pm: Tito on Timbales
May 13 at 7pm: Asuka:
May 20 at 7pm: El Beso:
May 27 at 7pm: Bury Me Standing:

Asuka (2011)
Choreography by Eduardo Vilaro
(In collaboration with the Company Artists)
Music Sound Scape Remix by Jesse Felluss
Music by Bola de Nieve: Drume Negrita
Celia Cruz: Yemaya, Tu Voz, Te Busco, Pa' la Paloma, Agua Pa' Mí, Guantanamera
Costume Design by Eduardo Vilaro and Diana Ruettiger
Lighting Design by Joshua Preston
Asuka is a celebration of the music of Celia Cruz through the lens of the Latino experience. Cruz, renowned as the "Queen of Salsa," captured the heart of Latinos the world over and became a symbol of perseverance for many. Through rich imagery and humor, Eduardo Vilaro explores the struggles of departure from one's homeland and the exuberance of success experienced by a community.
World Premiere: December 17, 2011 at the Apollo Theater
Asuka was commissioned in part by Goya Foods in celebration of their 75th Anniversary, by Gaily and John Beinecke, and by the University of Notre Dame's DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

Bury Me Standing (1998)
Choreography by Ramón Oller
Traditional gypsy melodies and flamenco music by Lole Y Manuel
Costume Design by Aviad Arik Herman
Lighting Design by Joshua Preston
The unique culture of the Gypsy or "Roma" people, a marginalized community that has journeyed across continents for thousands of years, inspire Spanish choreographer Ramón Oller to create Bury Me Standing. The compelling rhythms and melodies which accompany the ballet reflect the emotional essence of the Roma: their strong communal bonds, sensuality, feelings of oppression and longing, and their strength and exuberance.
New York Premiere: April 5, 2016 at The Joyce Theater

El Beso (2014)
Choreography by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano
Music by Amadeo Vives, Tomás Bretón,
Reveriano Soutullo and Juan Vert, and Ruperto Chapi
Women's Costume Designs by Angel Sanchez
Men's Costumes Styled by Angel Sanchez
Lighting Design by Joshua Preston
Set Design by Luis Crespo
Spaniard Gustavo Ramírez Sansano's first work for Ballet Hispanico is a spirited look at the nuances of a kiss set to Spanish Zarzuela music and featuring original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez.
World Premiere: April 15, 2014 at the Joyce Theater

Tito on Timbales (1984)
Choreography by William Whitener
Music by Tito Puente
Costume Design by Patricia Zipprodt
Costume Remount Interpreted by Leanne Mahoney
Lighting Design by Roger Morgan
Tito on Timbales is a tribute to the music of master percussionist Tito Puente. In this ballet, choreographer William Whitener captures the joy and intricacies of social dance through cascading patterns, sensual partnering and the community of celebration.
Tito on Timbales and Stick on Bongo performed originally by Tito Puente and the Tito Puente Rhythm Section: Jose Madera, Bobby Rodriguez and Johnny Dandy Rodriguez.
Tito on Timbales was made possible by a grant from the MetLife Foundation and with public support from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.

# B Unidos
The series features a series of videos posted created by the three arms of the Ballet Hispánico: the professional company, the School of Dance, and Community Arts Partnership (CAP) and featuring the hashtag #BUnidos at www.instagram.com/ballethispanico/.

5) Premiere Project from Thirdwing

A Streaming Theater Company

THE FEMALE GENIUS


Thirdwing, a digital theater company designed to develop plays directly for streaming as well as for the live stage, has launched its first streaming theater project, Rachel Carey’s THE FEMALE GENIUS on its streaming platform. The production is open for streaming review.

In series of short plays, set up as six separate “episodes,” a dying Emily Dickinson verbally abuses her caring sister; Gertrude Stein's lover wants "to be the man" for a change; Mary Shelley procrastinates on writing Frankenstein by seducing Lord Byron; JK Rowling can’t pay the babysitter; Ayn Rand encourages a young acolyte to assault her; and Zora Neale Hurston’s pro-segregation speech upends white expectations. THE FEMALE GENIUS is a darkly comic look at the struggle of having great talent in a misogynistic world.

All six plays are now available to stream and are under 10 minutes each.

Thirdwing is the first theater company to merge the live experience with the streaming experience, not to supplement one for the other. THE FEMALE GENIUS was supposed to have a concurrent live production happen at The Wild Project to coincide with the streaming launch. Covid-19 scuttled that plan.
