Composer Gregory Richardson and choreographer Leonardo Sandoval present Partido, a reflection on Sandoval’s experience as an Afro-Brazilian immigrant and artist living in the U.S., told through a mixed language of tap and percussive dance, samba, house, and original, live music. It explores his perspective of the Black experience in both countries, the common roots of African-American and Afro-Brazilian dance forms, and universal themes of immigration, like ambiguous feelings surrounding assimilation, homesickness, and being exoticized. Community engagement through external workshop activities and in-show audience participation will be a central component, using body percussion as an invitation to participate in music and movement simultaneously.
