Arboles (Trees)

A new work by Jhoely Triana

How can we find strength from our roots, persevere through hard times and reach out towards community for hope?  Drawing on the metaphor of trees, “Arboles (Trees)”, invites the audience into the universal language of emotion. Choreographed by Jhoely Triana, the 40-minute, site-responsive performance connects with audiences through flamenco music and dance to share themes of hardship, perseverance and determination. Featuring live music and the signature Bata de Cola skirt - and set among actual trees - the work creates dialogue about our lived experiences with our community and spreads the seeds of empathy and compassion.
