Ballet Hispánico: Doña Perón

Critically-acclaimed Doña Perón is an explosive portrait of Eva "Evita" Perón, one of the most recognizable and controversial women in Argentinian history. The illegitimate daughter of a wealthy landowner, Evita concealed this shameful past as she climbed the ranks from dancehall performer to Argentina's First Lady. A voice for the people, or a deceitful actress? Latina choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa explores these diverging legacies while reclaiming the narrative of this iconic Latina figure in a “smashingly theatrical” (Chicago Sun-Times) evening-length work performed with exquisite live music.

Themes

  • This dance takes a look at the complexities of a historical icon. Those complexities include the different ways that people view Eva Peron's legacy. Why do you think they are choosing to include multiple points of view instead of just one? 
  • One of the moments from the dance shows her on a high platform, and being supported by others. Who are the people in your life that support you? Are there ways that you would like to be supported differently?
Contains mature themes. Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.
