ALDD May & June Performances!

Hola Amigos!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your generous donations to Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama.

Or 10th Anniversary celebration and the re-creation of Pachamama: Mother World will be made possible because of your trust and support!

As a director of ALDD, I’m thrilled to invite you to see our May and June performances:

Pachamama: Mother World is an exploration of Dance Theatre inspired by the male initiation rituals of the Selk’nam, a tribe of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. The performance unfolds like a prehistoric commedia dell arte, moving away from the presentational side of dance and reconnecting with the primal impulses of art.

Saturday, May 28 at 7:30pm: IDACO Festival at Sheen Theater (18 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012).

READINGS & DANCE PERFORMANCES of the book Unveiling Motion and Emotion

I will be reading passages of my book and ALDD dancers will perform DanceDrama repertory! Bring your picnic blanket, food and sunscreen. 

All the readings are FREE and open to the public.

  • Saturday, June 4 at 3pm at Figment at Governors Island. Rain date: Sunday, June 5 at 3pm. 
  •  Sunday, June 12 at 1:45pm and 3:30pm at Dance on this Sod at Northside Brooklyn in collaboration with Williamsburg Walks. 
  •  Saturday, June 25 at noon, Part of NYC Dance Week at McCarren Park in the open field behind the red building by Lorimer Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 

Thanks again for your generous donations. We'll see you at the shows!

A BIG hug, Anabella & team
