Compañía Irene Rodríguez at The Pillow
The “intense, exacting” (The New York Times) performer and choreographer Irene Rodríguez is one of the most prominent figures in Cuban dance. Alongside her six talented dancers and an ensemble of live musicians, Rodríguez melds flamenco’s fiery passion and exhilarating footwork with a unique Afro-Cuban flair, leaving a “trail of triumph and applause” (Granma, Cuba). The program will include a world premiere work and a U.S. premiere.
Among many other honors, Rodríguez has received First Prize in the Ibero-American Choreography Competition “Alicia Alonso” CIC’ 2012, an award from the Author’s Foundation of the Spanish General Society of Authors and Editors (SGAE), and the Excellence Award for the Best Choreography from the International Choreography Contest of the XXII International meeting of Ballet Academies in 2016.
