Make Believe uses religious iconography to explore themes of love and romance. In it we explore religious spectacle and how these rituals are unified by themes of paganism, magic and celebrity worship. Make Believe deconstructs what it means to believe in magic and how that bleeds into our constructions of spirituality and our understanding of romance.
Estimated run time: 50 mins
Originally conceived at The American Dance Festival during a 2013 choreographic residency, Make Believe is a work in progress that is set to premiere on Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre in 2018.
“Herrera is a master of contrast, using it to create humor and to expose the layered meaning of a moment.”
