Piñata 45: The End of Her Rope
Multi-Media Dance Production
Co-Presented by Piñata Dance Collective and Dance Mission Theater
Choreographer, Liz Duran Boubion, dangles at the end of her rope in an historically suspended tale of Piñatas, Miss Venezuela and the fatal body politics of the feminine. Joined by her diverse cast of grotesque-burlesque modern dancers, writers and singers, the Piñata Dance Collective moves through 500 years of re-appropriated rituals that involve breaking open, over-consumption, body manipulation and a re-framing of sex, race and power.
