PAST PRODUCTION EVENTS
She: Featuring NYC premiere of The Abduction of Genoveffa

"SHE" is a dance theater show in two parts that evokes the female voice, heard and unheard. Curated by internationally renowned Dalia Carella, Artistic Director of the NYC-based Dalia Carella Dance Collective (DCDC), “She” is a powerful representation of the myriad aspects of womanhood.
The first part will feature some of the finest New York City World Dance Artists that will depict feminine archetypes: matriarchs, femme fatales, and goddesses, as well as explore modern day female values.
The second part will be DCDC's 2015 NYC premiere of “The Abduction of Genoveffa”. This multidisciplinary docudrama tells the story of Dalia’s grandmother, Genoveffa, who at sixteen years old, who was previously engaged to the man she loved, was abducted, forced to marry her abductor and leave Italy for America. The core of this presentation will focus on how her destiny changed forever in that one despairing night. This passionate dance piece will lead you on a tumultuous journey from her survival through bitterness and loss, to her will to triumph with motherhood and family.
Special Note* This project is a huge undertaking, with travel to Italy for research, rehearsals, salaries for 11 dancers, press materials, etc. If you would like to donate, go to the Kickstarter page here. Thank you!
