February 3 & 4 2017
Villa Victoria Center for the Arts
Join us for unfolding creations to live music lead by Beau Kenyon in this enticing site specific work at the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts. Urbanity's Professional dancers invite questions with this series of original choreographed vignettes. Exploring themes presented by Pablo Neruda’s Book of Questions, dancers move the audience quickly from nonsense to bittersweet humor to the grief of death and the gray area of fairness.
Featuring guest dancers from ages 7-70, Urbanity unveils the drastic range of emotions throughout life, letting the audience rediscover their sense of wonder and questioning.
The Friday evening performance will feature a speech and book signing by noted translator and Neruda Scholar, Ilan Stavans. Both evenings will have a closing reception to meet the dancers and creative minds behind the performance!
General Admission $26
Preferred Seating $50
