Description

For their Maui debut, they will perform Cookie’s Kid and excerpts from Dining Alone. Cookie’s Kid is a solo dance theater work that explores what is inherited muscle memory. The first solo work by Rosie Herrera, it utilizes her unique and diverse performance background ranging from cabaret, classical music, and urban and contemporary dance as a way to explore and dissect the oppression of toughness. Utilizing iconography ranging from La Lupe, Charles Bronson, and Walter Mercardo as the framework to explore movement, Cookie’s Kid is an exploration on how these seemingly unrelated idols are connected within a theme of rebellion, strength, vulnerability, and the ethereal. Dining Alone is an exploration into the deconstruction of empathetic instincts assigned to age, fragility, youth, and isolation. Addressing the inherent drama and comedy attached to food, Dining Alone invites you into the bittersweet and private moments that are amplified by the experience of dining.
