Choreographers Rayven Armijo and Paola Escobar each head their own companies but join forces to cross urban borderlines for Dual Perspective. An alumna of the respected Grandeza Mexicana Mexican Folk Ballet and veteran of season four of So You Think You Can Dance, Armijo brings an eclectic background in ballet, contemporary and folkloric dance to her urban folklórico troupe Cuerva. By contrast, Colombian choreographer Escobar and her Borderline Movements draw on elements of flamenco, African and Latin American dance. The choreographers and their dancers tackle issues of appropriating Latin American and Hispanic cultural traditions as well as exploring current social and political issues. There'll be lots of provocative and topical elements combined in this one collaborative dance concert.
