Join our world premiere documentary film exploring the creation of a new work for Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble.

This 30-minute documentary film explores the creative process behind a new work by Amalia Viviana Basanta Hernández, the artistic director of Ballet Folklórico de México. The work was supposed to be presented live at the Power Center in January 2021, but was postponed due to the pandemic. Cleo Parker Robinson continued to develop the work with her company as part of a UMS Digital Artist Residency and opened up rehearsals to filmmaker Alan Domínguez, who captured footage throughout the creative process. The Four Journeys explores Mexico’s four root cultures — Indigenous, Spanish, Asian, and African — in a multi-media production embracing elements of each heritage.

The Oct 1 premiere will be immediately followed by a live Q&A with the artists, filmmaker, and creative team.
