Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director and CEO Eduardo Vilaro reacts to the ideas presented in the exhibit Juan de Pareja: Afro-Hispanic Painter with Buscando a Juan ("Looking for Juan"). This MetLiveArts commission, which features dancers from Ballet Hispánico, explores the "sancocho"—literally, mixed soup—of cultures and diasporas. Through the exoticized body and fixation on gesture and sensuality, Buscando a Juan will consider the assumptions experienced when witnessing people of color in traditionally white spaces.

Commissioned by MetLiveArts

Free with Museum admission

This program is made possible by the Arnhold Fund for Dance Innovation at The Met and the Adrienne Arsht Fund for Resilience through Art.
