CASITA @ Park Square Theatre – Andy Boss Thrust Stage
March 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
One event on March 6, 2022 at 2:00 pm
I was just three months late on the rent. This story and other moving stories of women without homes inspired “Casita.” This poignant work is a stunning intersectional glimpse at homelessness through flamenco dance, directed and choreographed by Susana di Palma. Danced by Di Palma and Jeanne d’Arc Casas from Spain, “Casita” features original music performed by flamenco guitarist Ben Abrahamson, jazz pianist Billy Steele, flamenco percussionist/singer Jose Moreno, and gospel vocalist Tonia Hughes.
The artistic development of “Casita” was funded by a 2018 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative grant awarded to Di Palma. In addition, MANCC, Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography, in Tallahassee, Florida, provided a residency for the development of “Casita” as part of Di Palma’s 2017 McKnight Fellowship for Choreography. “Casita” initially premiered in 2019 as part of “What the Moon Sees” at the Lab Theatre in Minneapolis.
