mignolo dance presents Manifested Destiny at Pearl St. Parking Metuchen

Mignolo Dance has a new work merging mediums, with a clashing of creativity: literature, music, and dance. These elements come together to explore the history of the USA and its beloved authors. You are invited to go and see their incredible cast of thirteen accompanied by original music, and be swept into a world of words and movement as they dissect and re-contextualize the works of Walt Whitman, Emily Dickenson, Langston Hughes, Sylvia Plath, and many more on November 14 & 15 at 7PM.


Mignolo’s unique vision is to create an entire evening of translated texts expressing the writing of American authors in a never-before-seen way. Each movement correlates to a word, which enables every audience member to find through-lines over the course of the entire piece.


After many months of postponement due to COVID-19, the company is thrilled to have found a venue to safely support this program, and greatly appreciates the support of the Metuchen Arts Council and NEXUS Parking Systems.
