An evening of new works choreographed by Miya Hisaka Silva, Danilo Rivera, Yasmin Hernandez, Francisco Castillo and Adrain Bolton captures the country’s aching beauty and history. “Powerfully in the moment, rich with nuance, physically sumptuous…” —New York Times
El Teatro de Danza Contemporanea de El Salvador (TDC) was originally established in San Salvador in l994 by Director Miya Hisaka Silva and Associate Director Francisco Castillo. TDC is distinctive because it is the first professional company in the history of El Salvador, inclusive of contemporary, classical and indigenous works, and because its objectives go beyond performance. The Company originally united artistic leaders from all regions of El Salvador with a common vision for dance, as well as a driving commitment for the re-development of the country after a 12-year civil war. TDC uses dance as a means to: preserve a distinctive Central American history/culture; for self-expression; for the restoration of lost history; for healing and the development of human dignity; to maintain dialogue and exchange between two Central America societies – one in USA and one in Central America, and to help build a new vision and fundamental values upon which a changing US Hispanic society is being built. TDC is committed to a country, to its people and to its unique history with an insistence on artistic excellence. The Company’s repertory reflects through dance the human spirit, with the hopes to inspire in people the ability to dream!
