This is Herrera's MN Debut. Using water as a metaphor for the unconscious, Various Stages of Drowning recreates dream states using dance, theater, cabaret, and film. The breakout piece by this young choreographer, World Dance Reviews calls Herrera "a magician… that twists our emotions " and The Classical Voice of North Carolina says this work is "strange and adventurous...hugely ambitious and skilled in its scope. "Dining Alone is an exploration into the deconstruction of empathetic instincts assigned to age, fragility, youth and isolation. Addressing the inherent drama and comedy attached to food, Dining Alone invites you into the bittersweet and private moments that are amplified by the experience of dining.

Rosie Herrera: Rosie Herrera has emerged as Miami's leading cutting-edge, multidisciplinary choreographer and theater artist. Combining modern dance, ballet, drag, burlesque, theater, hip hop, and opera, she is paving the way for the next generation of artists in the U.S. She has danced with Freddick Bratcher and Co, Animate Objects Physical Theater, Bill Doolin and Composition Hybrid Theater Project. As a rehearsal director, co-choreographer and performer, Herrera is a classically trained lyric coloratura soprano and performs with the Performers Music Institute Opera Ensemble as well as choreographs and stages operas independently throughout Miami. Her choreography has been presented by the Florida Dance Festival, Dot Fifty One Gallery, The Emerging Choreography Series at Excelo Dance Space, and internationally as part of the Digital World Institute.

In Miami, she was recently seen in Liony Garcia's Clandestine and Michael McKeever's South Beach Babylon, where her collaboration with dance theater Octavio Campos was hailed by critics as being "clever, funny and performed with such talent and vigor that it dimmed the lights of the Merce Cunningham troupe that had performed just an hour before..." She collaborated with local filmmaker Lucas Leyva on a short film that premiered at the 2011 Borsht film festival.
