This not-to-be-missed performance will feature outstanding works by three Queens-based performing arts companies:
Ballet Los Pampas a sensational, elegant dance company presenting Argentine Tango and folk dances of Latin America. Accompanied by live music, Ballet Los Pampas will perform the zamba, a romantic, ceremonious dance which represents the plight of a suitor wooing his beloved; and the chacarera, a festive traditional dance which always elevated the spirit of the people of the Argentine countryside.
Uncle Yaos Chorus a vibrant ensemble which celebrates Chinese culture and the bridging of cultural boundaries through both Chinese and Western traditional music. This remarkable chorus of 75 men and women will charm the audience with their enchanting voices and elegant melodies.
Mariana Bekerman Dance Company an innovative modern dance ensemble performing their newest work, A Goyish Affair with a Twist, a light, comedic dance theatre piece that explores conflicts and nuances arising from intercultural relationships. This witty piece an ideal adventure for Queens audiences portrays the story of a Russian-Jewish/Latino wedding in New York City, ripe with family struggles and cultural humor.
The evening will include a post-performance talk and question and answer session with the artists. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for audience members to have personal interaction with such a diverse group of performing artists, and to learn firsthand about their craft and the lifestyle of a professional artist.
