LUMBRE: A Concert by Emerging Choreographers

The University of New Mexico Department of Theatre and Dance is proud to announce “Lumbre” an inspiring dance concert featuring new works in Contemporary and Flamenco, choreographed and produced by students of the UNM Dance Program.

The Student Dance Concerts have always been a cornerstone of the UNM Dance Program, and “Lumbre” promises to be an extraordinary addition to this tradition. The fall and spring performances are a testament to the passion, dedication, and artistic expression of our students.

Rondeña by Kayla Lyall: Finding Our Most Authentic Selves

Presented in “Lumbre” is Rondeña by MFA student Kayla Lyall, a performance that serves as a representation of the search for our most authentic selves. In the piece, Lyall explores the will to continue, find something from nothing, and explores the highs and lows of life.

Catalyst by Isa De Groote Tavares: Embracing Change

Isa De Groote Tavares presents Catalyst, a work that dives into the decision to leave an entire life behind and start anew. It explores the challenges of being alone, the bittersweetness of change, and the acceptance of transformation.

A Night of Diverse Performances

“Lumbre” offers a diverse array of performances, each exploring something fresh and unique through the medium of dance. From works about heritage and identity, to dance and disability futurities, to rebelling in a proscenium theatre space, the concert is a highlight of the UNM Theatre and Dance productions and not one to miss!
