About Zamba
"About Zamba" is a live performance that combines improvisational dance and storytelling. Growing up in Argentina there were things in my culture that were foreign to me even there, one of them is Zamba, a couple’s folk dance. It wasn’t until I moved to New York that I finally had the chance to explore this dance. In this process I learned a lot of things about dance, culture, language, and communication. This piece is about my experience as an immigrant, discovering my roots from far away.
