Ballet Hispánico, America's leading Latino dance organization, with its bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance, will be one of five companies in the fifth annual Hudson River Dance Festival on Pier 63 Lawn Bowl (at W. 23rd Street, Manhattan, NYC). The women of the Ballet Hispánico Company exercise their athleticism and power in Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Sombrerísimo, originally created for six men and inspired by the surrealist world of Belgian painter René Magritte, famous for his paintings of men in bowler hats. Sombrerísimo references the iconic sombreros (hats) found throughout the world that help to represent culture. Hudson River Park and The Joyce Theater bring Ballet Hispánico together with four additional companies for two shows, on June 6 and 7, 2019 at 7pm, presented by SHS Foundation and celebrating the vibrant and diverse voices and styles that NYC has to offer, set against the backdrop of the Hudson River sunset.
