What's Interesting

Choreographer Rosie Herrera wants you to imagine that, after a night of gleefully overindulging in absinthe cocktails, filmmaker Federico Fellini stumbles down an alley in old Havana. A door cracks open and music washes over him like a sticky sunrise in September. He steps inside into a primordial soup of neon and sound and tropical heat. A wild undercurrent pulses through the room, whispering that anything (and everything) might happen.

Surrealist el Tropical is a cabaret-style performane that incorporates dance, film, and burlesque to explore the unique glamour and humor of the Caribbean. Your evening begins at the corner of 14th and Central Parkway. Follow the flamingos into the building and up a short flight of (6) stairs. From there you'll find yourself immersed in a surrealist fever-dream behind-the-scenes and on the stage of Music Hall.

This CSO Proof performance is recommended for audiences age 18+ (sensuality & sexual innuendoes)
