CARNE VIVA by Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre at The Light Box

APR 11 – APR 13
THE LIGHT BOX AT GOLDMAN WAREHOUSE
404 NW 26 STREET | WYNWOOD

After a four year hiatus, Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre is finally back in MiamiI with Carne Viva – an exploration into the violence of transcendence! Loosely translated to mean “open wound” Carne Viva builds upon the themes of religion and romance for a work that is much sparser and physical than Herrera’s previous work. Brutal and elegant, Carne Viva is a visceral journey into the dichotomy of power within relationships.

Stick around for curated conversation with brilliant local instigators and creatives, and for an inevitable dance party!
