Set in the 1930's "Un Tanguito Cualquiera" explores the tension and frustration of romantic relationship between two women.

Choreographer: Gregory Dolbashian in collaboration with The DASH

Dance Artists: DASH Ensemble (different artists everynight)


Gregory Dolbashian came together with his DASH Ensemble to explore the idea of contemporary dance inhabiting the entire lobby of the Sheen Center. With extreme physicality and vibrant personality, the work pushes the limits of traditional performance, bringing its audience very close into a world of intense relationships and daring movement. Each night of the of peformance in the lobby simply provides an insight into the movement and theatrical world of The DASH and acts as a connection between the pieces and the artists.


The DASH Ensemble is a New York City based contemporary dance group founded and directed by Gregory Dolbashian. Combining elements of modern, hip hop, floor work and physical theater Dolbashian has created his own unique style of contemporary dance with an urban flair. The DASH seeks to bring out relatable human elements in all of its work using its complex and challenging movement language to express ideas about growth, love, loss, war, and determination. With a group of six incredibly diverse artists both in style and cultures, Dolbashian pulls from the specialties of each artist to help create the fusions of styles that the DASH exhibits. These skills range from breakdancing, flexing, contemporary floor work, intricate partnering, and even a touch of classicism.

Collaborators: Maria Lucia, Edoardo Biancardi and Marco Rigamonti.

Dance Artists:  Ada Cacciatore, Andrea Frisano and Laurel Richardson.

Music: Ludovico Einaudi & Mauro Durante "Taranta " Officina Zoe “Don Pizzica”


In this performance I want to represent an original combination between taranta and contemporary dance, a duet of love, hate and jealousy, characteristic of a young couple who struggle with their love traditions. The bite of the spider itself, is an excuse to get rid of depression and suffering of love, the convulsive movements that goes with it, justify their behavior followed by the healing process.


Ada Cacciatore is a dancer, performer and choreographer from Italy. She began her professional dance training under the direction of Margherita Parrilla at "Accademia Nazionale di Danza" in Rome, where she received her degree. She continued her study at "The Ailey school" where she completed her Independent Study Program.

Choreographer: Caterina Rago

Dance Artist: Caterina Rago

Music: Ludovico Einaudi


The labyrinth is a disorienting journey that leads within, hiding the most mysterious self. An inner maze that is projected outwardly. A complex path that never seems to end. The maze is a figurative representation of abstract and intriguing reality. A trip over the limits into a dimension yet to be explored.  A journey that will transport you from the darkness to the light. The maze is in man! He is forced to explore it to find himself, the center, the core of his being.


Originally from Italy, Caterina Rago obtained her B.F.A. from l’Accademia Nazionale di Danza in Rome. She completed the Professional Training Program at Martha Graham Center.
