PASEO / October 2012
a roving site-specific performance by choreographer Joanna Haigood and music director Bobby Sanabria that celebrated the Hunts Point and Longwood sections of the South Bronx and their astounding contribution to Latin music. With performances by over 80 dancers, musicians, poets, actors, and community members, the neighborhoods’ fire escapes, stoops, and sidewalks came alive with Latin music and dance, stickball games, and street scenes evoking the vibrant street life and cultural vitality between 1945 and 1970. PASEO received a Bessie Award “for an outstanding production of a work stretching the boundaries of a traditional form.”
