Two works by Miami’s Rosie Herrera whose witty, complex dances mine the personal to portray the universal.

Told through the lens of Herrera’s childhood with a tough-as-nails Bronx mother and a counter-revolutionary Cuban refugee father, Cookie’s Kid explores ecstatic movement to discover the body’s cultural history.

Dining Alone deconstructs empathetic instincts assigned to age, fragility, youth and isolation while addressing the inherent drama and comedy attached to food.
