Save the Date: Oct 23-25

Dear Friends,

SAVE THE DATE: October 23-25, 2015 at The Alchemical Theater Lab, located at 104 W 14th Street, (between 6Av and & 7 Ave) in NYC.

We will premiere In Pursuit of Happiness, a special new dance theater piece in honor of my father Antonio that passed away last year.

Infinite THANKS for your support, Anabella

What does it mean to disappear? In Pursuit is a work which explores the themes of death, memory, disappearance, and hope through a collage of juxtapositions. Through this fragmented approach I hope to piece together for myself the experience of losing my father. Although the jarring images and disruptive use of many media may initially seem to yield no cohesion, unification comes from the use of these diverse media.

In Pursuit is a powerful combination of dance, theater, props, photo projections, video, and also a theoretical exploration of existence. Jean Cocteaus once said, “if you want to see death, just keep looking in the mirror.” I will be working with dancer, Lauren Ohmer, acting and voice coach, Daniel Pettrow (Wooster Group), and music landscape designer Todd Carroll (School of Visual Arts).

Anabella's New Book

Dear Friends,

Thanks for your generous support of Pachamama in 2013.

Your trust moves me deeply.

I ask you to be by my side again and support the creation my new book Meaningful Gestures: Inner Thought and Outward Expression!

This new book will serve current and future dancers as they continue to train and explore the professional world of dance. As a teacher I have been sharing my knowledge with a younger generation for 25 years, and I hope through my second book to continue to broaden the scope of students I reach.

With immense gratitude, Anabella
