“There is no more defiant a land that I can think of than AXIS.
They showed me what dance could be.”
– Bill T Jones, Choreographer/MacArthur Fellow

Historias Rotas (Broken Stories), choreographed in 2018 by our current Artistic Director Nadia Adame, explores how our stories start with our ancestors: Their struggles, their tears, and their smiles. We go through life gathering stories and collecting moments that become part of our baggage. We are who we are because of these moments and the people we encounter.
This 45 minute dance film by former Artistic Director Marc Brew that explores the multiple meanings of home as it peels back the layers to uncover the human need for belonging.
“Like much that is surprising in art … AXIS’s work instructs the viewer in how to appreciate it, and the lesson is delivered with cogent force: Sympathy is irrelevant. Forget what isn’t here, and pay attention to what is.”Bruce Weber, New York Times
