Miami choreographer Rosie Herrera’s ‘Show.Girl.’ premieres

Show.Girl., Rosie Herrera’s new piece for New York’s Ballet Hispanico, is very different from the vivid, surreal works we’ve previously seen from this Miami dancemaker. Herrera’s first commission for a major company, which premiered Friday night at the Adrienne Arsht Center, is more restrained, conceptual and opaque, more dependent on abstract movement, instead of images, to communicate its ideas. There are strong moments, notably a sequence in which dancer Vanessa Valecillos becomes a universal female emblem amid a cloud of white feather fans.
