World Premiere Event
Our original run of Antonio’s Song in March/April 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. We are thrilled to bring this moving world premiere to Milwaukee Rep audiences in our 2020/21 Season.
A poetic journey of a dancer/artist/ father questioning the balance of his passions — art, culture family. A story that, questions/challenges the legacy of stereotypes: of manhood/ race/fatherhood. This solo/movement drama explores the sins of our fathers and mothers — as well as the gifts that our parents bestow upon us. How do we own the responsibility — TO RECOGNIZE? TO BE AWARE? Antonio Edwards Suarez, a breathtaking performer shares the legacy with pain, promise, and hope.
“It’s brilliantly, movingly done, with a virtuosic performance by Suarez." – DC Metro
