ETD Tour to Merida, Mexico

Cristobal Ocaña, Director of XVII International Avant Garde Mexico Dance Festival 2016 has invited us to perform for the second year in a row!

A new city has been added to the tour as well - Chochola! The mayor saw last year's performance and we're incredibly honored to have been requested there.

From September 20th to 27th, ETD will be performing in Chochola & Merida, including shows in the famous, Teatro José Peón Contreras. The company will be world-premiering four new works! The evening length presentation includes collaborations with renowned composer Gerald Busby and composer-author Daniel Tobias. The original costumes for the works were created by Scooter LaForge, Milan DelVecchio, and Dav Burrington. The lighting and video projection will be done by Chris Annas-Lee and a special 10-Year Anniversary video will be shown!

However, the trip isn't all about performing. ETD will partner with Umbral Danza Contemporanea again, to host and teach dance workshops to professional dancers and the orphaned and violated youth of Merida. Last year, Eryc invited the children on stage for an encore with the company and we can't wait to see the kids again this year!
