Ballet Hispanico gave a sensuous and thought-provoking performance to begin the American Dance Festival’s second week on June 20-21. Its highlights were Cayetano Soto‘s dark, spiky male-female duet Sortijas, set to a haunting song by Lhasa de Sela, and a new work by Rosie Herrera, Show.Girl, which looks at Cuban-American Latina identity, Miami version. Herrera continues to refine her unique sensibility without suppressing its outrageous vitality, and Show.Girl may prove a pivotal dance in her career.
