Event Details

Saturday May 4th – 8.30p.m. & Sunday May 5th at 3:00 p.m. Macho Man XXI, by Tania Pérez-Salas Dance Company at Mid-Stage | Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33135).

 

Synopsis

With a sense of humor and intense physical imagery, Macho Man XXI tackles the effects of gender violence taking place in the chaotic, surreal and exotic culture of Mexico. In riveting and craftily gender-coded dance, the powerful and daring work pulls up fear by its roots, revealing the submissive and perverted state of this social legacy, ever apparent in the media, contemporary beauty standards and their underlying violence.

60 minutes with no intermission.

 

 

 

About the Artist

Tania Pérez-Salas was born in Mexico City. After studying dance for fifteen years, she obtained significant recognition as a dancer and choreographer in the Mexican dance scene. From that moment, she went on to win numerous awards, such as: “Best Female Dancer” in the National Dance Competition (1993); “Best Performance” and “Best Choreography” from the Virginia Fabregas Award (1993); Mexico’s National and Continental Prizes for Choreography (1994) and at the international San Luis Potosí Festival, she was awarded (by the audience) “Best Choreography” (1996).

 

In 1994 she founded her own Company. Since then, she has been awarded several grants as a dancer and choreographer from renowned Mexican institutions and universities such as The National Fund for Culture and Arts, National Council for Culture and Arts, the National Institute of Fine Arts, the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Department of Interior Affairs of Mexico City, the National Center of the Arts, and the National University of Mexico.

 

In 2013 Ms. Pérez-Salas and her Company received the prestigious Lunas del Auditorio Award in Mexico and in 2014 was named Pioneer Woman of the National University of Mexico (UNAM) in recognition of her hard work and achievements in dance.
