Part 1 of American Catracho – a three-part suite conceived and curated by Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre Founder & Artistic Director Wilfredo Rivera.
Part 1 was developed during 2016 and debuted a the company’s fall concert series.
American Catracho is an expansive suite, slated for completion in 2019. The work explores immigration – from the trauma of leaving a birthplace to the shock of arriving in a new one and the challenge of making it home. Wilfredo Rivera, the piece’s creator, is himself a native of Honduras and a resident of the USA for the past 20 years.
