Acclaimed NYC Modern Dance Company Invited to Mexico City

New York, NY. Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater (AGDT), the critically acclaimed New York-based modern dance company with a Latin touch, has the great honor of being invited to perform in Mexico City in the theaters of two venues — on October 14th, 2010, at UNAM, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and on October 15th at the Museo del Templo Mayor.

UNAM is the premier university in Latin America. The jewel-like Museo showcases the extensive remains of the Aztec’s principal pyramid, discovered only in 1986 beneath the City’ central square, the Zocalo, which displays the 3000 art objects discovered thus far in the ongoing archeological project.

In conjunction with the performances, AGDT Director Annabella Gonzalez’ illustrious father, Enrique Gonzalez Aparicio, will be honored in a ceremony at UNAM as the founder of its Faculty of Economics, where the library is named after him. Ms. Gonzalez is greatly moved and honored to be part of that commemoration.

Both institutions are providing theaters, publicity and other assistance, but AGDT must raise $8,000 to cover artists’ fees, travel (New York City – Mexico City), hotel accommodations, and other expenses.

I spoke to Annabella who said:

Please look at our website, www.agdt.org, especially our Gallery page’s 6 minute DVD, and help us raise funds with a contribution of any size through our website’s Pay Pal account on our Contribute page. If you have any questions, please call us at 212.722.4128.
