For their exciting return to the SMDCAC stage, Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami presents a program reflective of both the emotional trials and tribulations of 2020 and an enduring optimism for a better 2021. Company premieres include “Castles in the Air” by Yanis Eric Pikieris, a contemporary tour de force originally created for film during pandemic lockdowns, Gerald Arpino’s “RUTH, Ricordi per Due”, the iconic choreographer’s statement on remembrance, love, and loss, and the powerful, high spirited “Adiemus” by Yanis Pikieris & David Palmer. The program also includes Ariel Rose “Esferas”, originally commissioned by DDTM for development through the company’s first SMDCAC lab theater Salon performance in 2017.
