What could be more Miami than Rosie Herrera?  Raised in Hialeah, a graduate of New World School of the Arts, this bilingual choreographer is equally at home performing in a South Beach cabaret or at the prestigious American Dance Festival in front of the world’s leading dance cognoscenti.

This past week, Rosie Herrera returned to her artistic home at the Adrienne Arsht Center with two Miami premieres and a company of dancers plucked from every corner of the Magic City – a b-boy, drag queen, ballerina, and gender-bender, just to name a few!  Her work represents a bright new voice in Miami dance theater, and points to the next generation of great artists living and working in South Florida.  Herrera’s two new pieces, Various Stages of Drowning and Pity Party, both co-commissioned by the Center and American Dance Festival, delve right into the soul of this young choreographer and the city she calls home.
