Arthur Avilés Typical Theatre Repertoire Excerpts (1998)

This recording features selections from Arthur Avilés Typical Theater repertoire. In Five Star Dance, classical and contemporary movement techniques are explicated across the dance floor to classical music. Following is Ritual Dance, where a group of dancers wearing white costumes emphasize upper body gestures as they move across the floor with stomping leg movements. In Maéva: A New York Rican's Ensalada, a group of dancers combine ethnic dance with traditional forms and later the character Maéva performs a monologue about her mother.

Arthur Avilés Typical Theatre (AATT) is a Bronx-based modern dance company committed to creating a repertoire of works that explore life on the margins of Latino and gay cultures, and to bring these works to local, national and international audiences. AATT debuted in France in April 1996 with MAÉVA AND THE FLOATING MAN. Avilés moved the company to the Bronx that same year.
