Refurbished 'Nightclub' to open

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Ballet Hispanico will revive Daniele's gritty depiction of a Buenos Aires tango club / bordello circa 1920 when the company returns to the Pabst on Saturday. But "Coda Noche" will arrive in a new, expanded context. /---/

Tina Ramirez, artistic director of Ballet Hispanico, commissioned Alexandre Magno's "Dejame Sonar" and Sergio Trujillo's "Hoy Como Ayer" to follow Daniele's tango piece.

Tango, salsa and ballet

By SID SMITH
The Chicago Tribune

The mission of Ballet Hispanico has been to blend all that and more, tossing in hints of classical ballet, for instance, into a sophisticated amalgamation born of the dozens of Spanish-speaking countries around the world. Not for nothing has the 33-year-old New York City ensemble been called a Latin version of Alvin Ailey's troupe.

Ballet Hispanico moves into the nightlife with flair

By SID SMITH
The Chicago Tribune

"Nightclub" is an ingenious effort to circumvent the age-old dilemma of repertory programming. Three works, by three separate choreographers, invariably mean an evening of unrelated short stories instead of a whole book.

'Nightclub' would pack 'em in with a few renovations

By HEDY WEISS
The Chicago Sun-Times

There was a great deal of absolutely sensational dancing Thursday night at the Chicago Theatre as the New York-based dance company Ballet Hispanico presented "Nightclub," a 90-minute, three-part dance-theater piece conceived by the troupe's artistic director, Tina Ramirez, and choreographed by Graciela Daniele, Alexandre Magno and Sergio Trujillo.

Dancers' bravura sears triptych

By TOM STRINI

Flesh slithers over flesh, female legs scissors around male hips and hands grope breasts and buttocks freely in Ballet Hispanico's "Nightclub," which played Saturday at the Pabst Theater.

Stories of Love and Loss, to a Latin Beat

By LAWRENCE VAN GELDER
The New York Times

The time: the 1920's. The place: Buenos Aires. Late at night in the smoky light swirling through the dance hall of a brothel, hardened women strike angular poses on the wooden chairs, their dresses sometimes rising or falling away to reveal the bare flesh of the gartered thighs above their hose. Beneath black fedoras, men in tight dark suits and open-collared white shirts, occasional flashes of blood-red scarves at their throats, slouch in. The unmistakable sound of the accordionlike bandoneon propels the music of Astor Piazzolla.

Ballet Hispánico
By Hilary Ostlere for The Financial Times


Nightclub, a world premiere, is the overall title for a three-part work that gives Ballet Hispánico's dancers a prime opportunity to display their exuberant talent.

Founded by Tina Ramírez, this is a company that mixes ballet with mambo, modern with tango, all featured in this work by Graciela Daniele, Alexandre Magno and Sergio Trujillo.

The first is set in a 1920s Buenos Aires whorehouse, the second in 1950s Spanish Harlem and the third in one of today's more dissolute nightclubs, but the differences in location and era are not particularly obvious in either steps or atmosphere.

You can dance in a club if it's in the new NYU student center

By ELIZABETH ZIMMER
The Village Voice

Scenes from Latino club culture unfolding at NYU's new Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts are studies in cognitive dissonance, and not just due to the gold pillars flanking the stage. Tina Ramirez's dancers are gorgeous, the costumes by Paul Tazewell alluring, and the lighting (by Peggy Eisenhauer and Howell Binkley) spectacular, but the choreography...
