Antonio’s Song / I Was Dreaming of a Son
A John (Jack) D. Lewis New Play Development Program Production
Catherine & Buddy Robinson
The Stiemke Studio Season is presented by Four-Four Foundation
Antonio’s Song is a poetic journey of a dancer/artist/father questioning the balance of his passions – art, culture, family. From the streets of Brooklyn to Russia’s ballet training studios, Antonio struggles to reconcile multiple ethnic identities. He wrestles with the legacy of stereotypes of masculinity while discovering the beauty of becoming a father. Dael Orlandersmith’s powerful poetry is intermixed with stunning original movement, music and evocative projected imagery to create a wholly unique and stunning performance by the breathtaking Antonio Edwards Suarez.
“It’s brilliantly, movingly done, with a virtuosic performance by Suarez” – DC Metro
