COMING TO MYSELF - Elizabeth Bergmann, May 18 & 19

May 18 & 19


As an established choreographer and dancer, Elizabeth Weil Bergmann combines her dancing with her poetry to take the audience on a journey of self-discovery. Bergmann began writing poetry at a juncture when she was questioning her life’s path. Through some very deep personal work, her creative juices broke loose and out tumbled poems and songs and new ways of being. Her triumphs, her breakthroughs, and her heartaches tell her story as she explores relationship issues dealing with the struggles, the attractions, and ultimately the power of love. Her delight in nature blends with her spiritual quests as she finds her way to her authentic self.

SCD presents Sandra Portal-Andreu.

Miami-based choreographer, Sandra Portal-Andreu will present an evening of multi-disciplinary works that explore the facets of the female experience. Portal-Andreu will present three works that will guide the audience from space to space to explore movement and performance from a different lens. “ Hilo”, a work-in-progress, explores the ties women have to their country after being forcefuly uprooted. “Labyrinth” is a whimsical Dance on Camera that plays with movement, text, and song through the winding aisles on the Miami-Dade Main Library. And “For: Shame From: _______” investigates the female behavior of shaming and the social norms that one must adhere to. For more info visit:
