Leading contemporary dance company, Augusto Soledade Brazzdance (ASBD), will premiere their latest piece Think Blue in the Arsht Center's intimate Carnival Studio Theater! Their performance will also include excerpts of different works both old and new, giving audience members a sample of ASBD's diverse repertoire. Think Blue is inspired by the book Why The Sky Is Far Away: A Nigerian Tale, retold by Mary-Joan Gerson. This repertory work, along with the book, touches on current issues in our relationship with our living environments and natural resources inviting all to reflect on our responsibility in keeping a balance between personal ambitions and sustainability.
The company seeks innovative projects that create fresh content and outlook on global life, considering various cultures and becoming a vessel for relevant contemporary dance repertory. Brazzdance dancers come from various backgrounds including The Caribbean, Brazil, and North America. Artistic Director Augusto Soledade feels that the diverse make-up of the company is an essential element in the definition and expansion of his acclaimed Afro-Fusion style, and will further enhance the notion that his works move from culturally rooted to universally scoped.
