Antonio’s Song / I was dreaming of a son
by Dael Orlandersmith & Antonio Edwards Suarez
Co-World Premiere with Milwaukee Repertory Theater / Directed by Mark Clements
Movement Direction/Choreography by Alexandra Beller
A poetic journey of a dancer/artist/father questioning the balance of his passions — art, culture family. A story that, questions/challenges the legacy of stereotypes: of manhood/race/fatherhood. This solo/movement drama explores the sins of our fathers and mothers — as well as the gifts that our parents bestow upon us. How do we own the responsibility — TO RECOGNIZE? TO BE AWARE? Antonio Edwards Suarez, a breathtaking performer shares the legacy with pain, promise, and hope.
