“So, a little bit about us. We are four—Blanca Aviles, Olivia Bustos Rodriguez, Emily Haines, Angelica Palomo—dancers, choreographers, performers and regular artsy fartsy beasts in and around the Chicago area. In our first show as independent artists, ‘Breaking Ground,’ we are revisiting, revising and reliving works originally made on the stage of Columbia College Chicago,” this foursome of eclectic women declares on their MySpace page. With varied skills and experiences including modern, hip-hop, tap, Pilates, yoga and a extensive influences in Mexican folkloric traditions (Olivia was a violinist/vocalist in a mariachi band for over ten years), these burgeoning choreographers are looking to make a distinctive mark in the Chicago dance community. They explore personal experiences and relationships with family, gender in our society and the influences of being Latina in the U.S. Links Hall presents these exciting talents in their exhibition of budding choreographers.
