Brazil & LDTP’s New Production Executive & Photographer

On the international stage, the Latina Dance Theater Project performed Slumber of Reason in Viana, Vila Velha and Vitoria, Brazil (May 22-June 16th). This dance residency involved teaching three lecture-demonstrations, a master class, and performing five times in three different theaters (the UVV on the campus of the University of Vila Velha, the Carlos Gomez Theater and Viana’s village Theater). Also, a performance collaboration with four-member Brazilian dance company EluzArtes (C.A.E.S. past title) was included in the residency, allowing the Latina Dance Theater Project to present two alternate programs on four different nights. One wonderful achievement came through Leonardo Serra, who accepted LDTP’s invitation to serve as production executive for the company. The entire residency was thoroughly documented via beautiful photographs produced by professional photographer Benivaldo Oliveira, who also consented to serve as the LDTP’s photographer when in Brazil.
