Dance and filmmaker/human rocket Enrique Villacreses takes a sci fi flight in Golden Society, following his wild imagination and his exhilarating, double-take inducing, hiphop-gaga-modern movement style to create a surreal vision of futuristic people in a subterranean world.
“When I improvise and create it’s intuitive – following what your body wants to do so you create a space for it to be genuine and organic,” says Villacreses. Golden Society was inspired partly by an encounter with outdoor sculptures in Tel Aviv, “I thought, what if they came to life?” and partly by an episode of Futurama, the beloved bizarro adult animated series, about mutant humans living beneath NYC.
Enrique Villacreses is a Miami-based dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker. His works have been presented in ScreenDance Miami Festival, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Dance Magazine, Contact Quarterly, Pérez Art Museum Miami, and on the Dancemakers: New Works series at New World School of the Arts.
