Osaka by Carmelo Segura
Carmelo Segura’s latest production of “Osaka” premieres at this year’s edition of the Dumbo Dance Festival, which presents 70 companies from New York and around the world.
Osaka is based on the legend of the Red Thread, which tells us that within the labyrinth of encounters and shared stories, there is a predesigned and perfect path, a scarlet string which connects us with our irrevocable destination.
Award-winning choreographer Carmelo Segura is one of the most innovative choreographers of his generation, with a very personal view and a unique choreographic style. His works have been performed in Australia, Japan, Germany, UK, Poland, Bulgaria, Italy, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Sweden, Korea, France and Spain, among others.
