Ballet Nepantla “Valentina”
Tributes the Women of Revolutionary Mexico
Ballet Nepantla dances “Valentina,” a Contemporary Ballet about the strength and resilience of women in Revolutionary Mexico, at Symphony Space in the Upper West Side, on Fri, May 27 at 8:30pm. From $20. 🇲🇽
“Valentina” is a collection of stories that speak to the strength and resilience of women during Revolutionary Mexico.
What New York City Ballet’s George Balanchine did with the folkloric dances of his native Russia, Ballet Nepantla is doing with the folkloric dances of Mexico.
Ballet Nepantla’s “Valentina” rewrites the story of what it means to be a Mexican woman.
By fusing contemporary ballet with traditional Mexican folkloric dance, “Valentina” tells stories of wealth and power, hope and despair, struggle and loss, and triumph.
