FORT LEE, N.J. — BALAM Dance Theatre, a non-profit professional dance theatre company, returns to New Jersey on Nov. 15 to premiere its new Out & About series program, "Myths and Stars," a program of dance and song featuring Inma Heredia, the world’s first Flamenco stand-up comedian.
The New York City-based company offers a new vision of contemporary dance by combining ballet, modern and diverse cultural dance styles from around the world and historic periods with Balinese theatre.
Two beloved myths will be represented through dance. The first, Rama and Sita, is an excerpt from the Hindu epic Ramayana, danced in a Balinese fusion style.
The second piece, Icarus, presents the Greek myth performed in a Baroque contemporary dance movement style with three-foot hand carved Balinese wings. El Vito, a Spanish escuela bolero solo, will round out the unique program.
The family-friendly show will include an audience participation segment.
The performance runs from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Leonia Public Library, 227 Fort Lee Road. The event is free and open to the public. The library is handicapped accessible.
