FROM A COLLISION OF EARTH, FIRE, AND ICE ARISES

THE MYTH OF A DYNAMIC HEROINE

ON A BRAVE QUEST AGAINST DEATH TO REGAIN HER TRUE NORTH

 

POWERFUL SOLO DANCE CREATED AND PERFORMED BY CARLOTA PRADERA

 

Miami, FL (May 2017) – Miami Theater Center (MTC) is proud to present Volcanic – created and performed by Spanish dancer-choreographer, Carlota Pradera. This solo dance performance is the third installment of MTC’s 5th Annual SandBox Series: MUJERES, which features powerful, new works by multi-talented Latina and Hispanic artists commissioned by MTC.

 

Volcanic tells the survival tale of a mythical and dynamic heroine born from the collision of earth, fire, and ice. Disbanded from her people, she sets out on a brave quest – crossing paths with a powerful arachnid witch, getting trapped in a deadly web, and then fighting with all her might to break free – to make it back to the place where she took her first icy breath.

Continuing the season’s theme of personal journeys and cultural exploration – and the grand finale of the MUJERES series – Volcanic premieres May 26th and runs through June 10th, 2017, in The SandBox at MTC. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm. Tickets: General Admission $25.
