From the chaos of daily life, Anabella Lenzu / DanceDrama distills the pure essence of real experience, real feelings and real people.
DanceDrama is the magnifying glass that reveals and examines emotional histories.
Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama is thought provoking and historically conscious dance-theater company, breaking down the wall separating artist from audience. Based in New York, the mission of AL/DD is to establish and develop a cultural, educational and artistic exchange between the communities of the United States, Argentina & Italy.
Lenzu crosses sociopolitical and cultural barriers, promoting dance and art education through teaching and performing. AL/DD explores themes of collective memory, individual identity, and social awareness by having dancers and audience fuse in a psychological and emotional experience. The repertory is an uncommon blend of modern dance, theater, ballet and ethnographic folk traditions.
