BWW Review: Carmen Aguirre Breaks Down Her Life Story Through Dance in BROKEN TAILBONE
October 08, 2019
In Nightswimming's BROKEN TAILBONE, presented by Factory Theatre, playwright and performer Carmen Aguirre does double duty as a dance and history instructor. A traditional seated theatre is swapped for a bare dancefloor, with a handful of chairs against the walls and a bar at the back of the room. Pulsating lights (lighting design by Michelle Ramsay) and steady beats (sound design by Pedro Chamale) are the final pieces that turn the space into a Latinx dancehall, where over the course of the 80-minute performance, Aguirre teaches the basics of salsa, meringue, and twerkinga?"among other popular dance stylesa?"while constantly connecting each type to an experience from her personal history.
