Flying V & Orange Grove Dance Present: More Than 90 Miles from Home
About this event
90 miles separate the Cuban coast from Key West.
Ninety miles of darkness, hope, waiting, and light.
In here, those ninety miles could be ninety thousand. Distancia infinita.
Cuban-American artist Colette Krogol, of Orange Grove Dance, takes the stage to share her personal journey reconciling the recurring dreams she has for a country she’s never touched. More Than 90 Miles From Home weaves together movement, poetry, and projection design within Krogol’s intimate chronicling of her family’s exodus from Cuba during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift.
