2020 Community Arts Programming Goals
We are attempting to bring to Plymouth the New England Tour of "PARTIDO" October 2020
Partido explores the convergence of percussive dance with contemporary urban styles in both African-American and Afro-Brazilian culture. Initially spured by Leonardo Sandoval's experience as an Afro-Brazilian immigrant in the United States, the piece celebrates and highlights the deep connections between music and dance of African origin in Brazil and the US, linking styles like sambra and house dance through shared rhythms and footwork. In Partido, choreography and music were develeped jointly by Sandoval and Richardson, along with the rest of the cast, starting from the principle that tap dance is music, and any piece of tap choreography should then also be considered a musical composition. The result is a choreographed soundscape, drawing from our backgrounds, musical, and choreographic interests.
