AGUA FURIOSA challenges audiences to confront the harsh realities of race, inequity and environmental degradation, while recognizing and uplifting our capacity for free thought. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Oya, the Afro-Cuban deity of wind and storms, Artistic Director and Choreographer Ana María Alvarez and the company harness their unique Urban-Latin movement approach to create a visually stunning and thought provoking evening of dance performance. AGUA FURIOSA merges call and response, a live vocalist, themes of water, fierce physicality and the performers’ own personal narratives. Audiences walk away from AGUA FURIOSA impacted and inspired to locate themselves inside the complex and transforming conversation of the human capacity for both compassion and destruction.
