Tù o Yo
Tù o Yo is a flamenco work exploring a perfectly guised facade while burdened by simultaneous opposing emotions of love and hate. An intimate look into the push and pull of these oppositions, the necessary reckoning, transformation, and evolution of a facade in exchange for freedom.
Nélida Tirado researched, developed and honed "Tù y Yo" with financial, administrative and residency support from Dance in Process at Gibney.
Dime Quién Soy
A passionate reflection of cultural identity by Nélida Tirado who stumbles upon flamenco accidentally upon her mother's desires to keep her connected to the roots of her native Bomba and Plena. This embarks her on a triumphant and challenging journey "dancing between cultures" in celebration of her authentic self where music and dance transcend and blurs lines of politics, race, and identity. Original music by Gonzalo Grau.
Dime Quién Soy was at the Jacob's Pillow Lab March 2021, expanding on the sold-out solo version of the show that premiered at Joe's Pub in 2016 in collaboration with the Flamenco Festival NYC. The project consist of 7 dancers and 6 musicians and will be available for touring in 2022-2023.
