Tad-Poles at the Modern

  • November 23, 2013 12:00 PM

Amphibian Stage Productions is proud to continue the tradition of collaboration between its own company artists and unique and powerful guest artists at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Amphibian presents three dynamic performers: Sinuhé Padilla , Peyrak Herrera, and Melanie Smith. Sinuhé Padilla is an ethnomusicologist born in Mexico City; his work merges the disciplines of sacred Aztec music and dance with other influences such as jazz, Afro-Latin music, Mexican folk, and trova. Peyrak Herrera and Melanie Smith are founding members of the multi-disciplinary performance troupe Pro-Alterne in Mexico City. Their beautiful performances honor and preserve Mexican culture and traditions while bringing the magic of stilt dancing to new audiences.
