Lorena and Antonio, two strangers in transit, appear at the same crossroad. Alone together, drawn into each other’s arms by the temptation of the unknown and the allure of a Bolero, the lovers are propelled into a seductive pas de deux in which each has to make a life-or-death decision. Helmed by award-winning director/choreographer Julio Monge (Cultural Consultant, Spielberg’s West Side Story), this captivating premiere by Puerto Rico’s eminent, Academy Award-nominated playwright-filmmaker-poet Jacobo Morales will take you to an otherworldly plane that is both sublimely surreal and devastatingly eternal.
