VALLETO Presents an Evening Celebrating Women

VALLETO presents an evening celebrating women on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 7:30pm at CPR-Center for Performance Research, 361 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn. Doors open at 7pm with an exhibition before the performance. Tickets are $18 in advance ($15 for students in advance, $20 at the door cash only), and are available at

VALLETO celebrates its fifth season with an evening of celebrating and empowering women. Dive into their authentic and intimate process for the company's latest work SOS. In an uncharted, otherworldly space, SOS explores the nature of the soul in chaos with now unrecognizable memories.

"Our mission is to empower women and unify diverse artists. Gender inequality, objectification of the female body and sexual taboos are concepts that still concern to women nowadays," said Valeria Y. Gonzalez, artistic director of VALLETO. "The right of freedom of expression, women empowerment, and feminism are still a goal to reach by many women and men. And it is relevant to today's concerns. As a company, our goal is to make a difference in the world of dance through empowering women. In this evening, we aim to invite the audience to see our process and experience the universal love that unifies us all."

Dancers: Danielle Alvarez, Abby Dick, Gianna DiGirolamo, Selina Shida Hack, Dasol Kim, Ayaha Otsuka, Kat Rodriguez, Devon Travis

Composer: Madeleine Cocolas

Costume Designer/Creative Assistant: Cassie Mills


VALLETO is a New York-based contemporary dance theater company led by Mexican American choreographer Valeria Yvette Gonzalez. Her inquiry in gender equality, freedom of expression, sexism, and diversity were crucial to founding VALLETO in 2014.

VALLETO is now a sought out emerging dance theater company whose MISSION is to empower women and unify diverse artists. VALLETO is an all female company with diverse backgrounds who explore what the unconscious mind hides inside the body, while creating an open space devoted to female empowerment and equality for all. Their process begins as a playground for senses, imagination, identity and politics explored through a magnifying glass; their detailed movement language describes femininity, tension, intimacy, impulse, raw emotions, and self-awareness. VALLETO narrates different topics in an abstract or humorous way to reveal the relationship between the body, the objective reality and the unconscious mind in this new digital era.

The company's performances and initiatives aim to inspire, impact, and empower the global unheard voices of the current millennium. Past work has explored the complexities of female body and soul in IN(touch), domestic violence in all women in me are, Brooklyn nightlife and humanity in un.hide,emptiness, addiction and isolation in the digital age in #VOIDS, and the inmaterial and spiritual part of being a human being in SOS.

In past seasons, VALLETO has performed to sold-out audiences in venues such as the East Village's Kraine Theater and Brooklyn's Center for Performance Research. The company selected to participate in HERE Arts Soho's "Sublet Series" and have interacted with the community through site specific performances in Washington Square Park. VALLETO has been selected to perform in Triskelion Arts's "Split Bill Series" in October 2018.
