Samba from the second city.

Deeply rooted in the Latino experience, Luna Negra Dance Theater moves to a Latin beat. Led by Cuban-born Eduardo Vilaro, this Chicago-based group showcases contemporary works by both proven masters and fledgling Latino choreographers. In its NYC debut at the New Victory Theater Jan. 25-Feb. 3, it performs three works: Vilaro's Quinceanera, about the traditional coming of age parties given for 15-year-old Latinas; Michelle Manzanales' Sugar in the Raw, a driving vision of human relationships set to music by Gustavo Santaolalla (who scored the film Babel), and Pedro Ruiz's lushly balletic Sonetos de Amor.
