Well known for its diverse collection of theatre, performance art, drag, opera, and ballet, the Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre presents Various Stages of Drowning: A Cabaret. The performance uses images of water as a metaphor for the unconscious, and director and choreographer, Rosie Herrera, states it “symbolizes several different types of drowning: drowning in somebody’s presence, by an experience, by an emotion, or being drowned by memory”. The unconscious dream state is brought alive through dance, theatre, cabaret, and film. Various Stages of Drowning consists of some of Miami’s greatest performers and creators and highlights the diverse and vibrant performing culture Miami has to offer.

AVPAwebDiscovered in 2009, Herrera has charmed both audiences and critics alike, not only in Miami, but across the country. She has sold out shows at the American Dance Festival and at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. She is blazing an unparalleled path for both present and future artists to follow, with fearless, unflinching depictions of modern culture.

The one-of-a-kind showcase will be performed on February 12 at Rudder Theatre. The show will also incorporate some Texas A&M student dancers. Tickets are available for purchase at academyarts.tamu.edu.
