El Colegio del Cuerpo @ Grand Performances
A fusion of modern dance vocabularies and Afro-Indian Caribbean tradition makes Cartegena, Colombia-based El Colegio del Cuerpo one of the most interesting dance companies coming out of South America. With a core complement that is from some of the poorest barrios, what unfolds on stage is oftentimes some of the most breathtaking physical dance expressions. See them Downtown tonight as part of Grand Perfromances. They have a special Noon show which will utilize the whole plaza; the evening show is at 8 p.m. Free.
