HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN — Three choreographers will present new works this weekend as part of a program to nurture and showcase local dance.

Home Grown, sponsored by the Dance Resource Center, provided a venue — the Bootleg Theater — for the choreographers as well production/tech oversight; marketing and audience engagement support; dramaturgical feedback; administrative assistance and rehearsal time and space. Performances can range from tap and ballet to flamenco and hip-hop.

The three choreographers featuring  during the March 2 – 4 shows include:

  • Nicole Berger, an artistic director for a contemporary ballet theater group, will present “Dancing with Dust,” a collection of memories that features dancers performing in a stark industrial office
  • Shirine Remahni,  a dancer and choreographer, presents “Play Small Piece,” which explores human relationships like a puzzle.
  • Katerina Tomás, artistic director of Mojácar Flamenco, presents “Romance Sonambulo,” which combines the power and passion of flamenco with the rich expressiveness of contemporary music and dance.

Homegrown will be presented March 2-3 at 7:30 pm. A second series of performances featuring the work of three other choreographers will be presented May 3-5
