This unique dance company democratizes performance through the unexpected. They champion unexpected bodies, telling unexpected stories and personal histories, in unexpected and hidden places. They are believers in the beauty of vulnerability and humanness. Pioneer Winter Collective is also the only Florida dance company that focuses on LGBTQ and other marginalized communities.
Reprise uses contemporary dance and physical theater to explore memory, marginalization, and queerness - how our lives intersect. The Miami Herald said this about Pioneer Winter's last premiere: “Pioneer Winter’s work, what he supports, what he thinks about and the ideas he voices, speak to and for people [...] it was provocative in just the way you want performance to be provocative, making you think about something you hadn’t or feel for someone you hadn’t identified with before; startling, exposed, unnerving, unexpectedly loving.”
The ensemble include a diverse cast of South Florida performers: Frank Campisano, Hector Machado, Niurca Márquez, Lize-Lotte Pitlo, June Romero, Katrina Weaver, and Pioneer Winter. This performance will contain challenging themes and nudity. There is free and ample parking behind the theater. Following the performance, audience members are invited to meet the artists.
