Pillow Debut

The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosts Christopher Unpezverde Núñez and collaborators for a special one-night-only performance on August 21. This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

Núñez is a visually impaired choreographer whose work celebrates immigrant and disabled narratives. As a Costa Rican born of Mískito descent, his inspiration comes from experiences of displacement, migratory journey, medicinal botany, indigeneity, and mythology. He embraces Audio Description, an access tool for Visually Impaired communities, as a form of resistance, preservation, cultural continuity, and perseverance. 

His movement practice titled Vortex explores mechanisms and concepts such as velocity distribution, vorticity (curvature), and circulation in relation to proprioception, anatomy planes (sagittal, transverse, frontal) and axes of movement.
