A Nightswimming Theatre Production

In Broken Tailbone, Carmen Aguirre leads a Latinx dance lesson, weaving together hilarious and moving stories of her experiences in the hidden world of dance halls in Canada while DJ Don Pedro creates an irresistible musical environment to get even the most reluctant dancer up on her feet! Daring, sexy, and, above all, fun, Carmen’s performance is an extended salsa lesson that flows into her remarkable stories of intimacy, politics, culture. Everyone in the audience dances as the evening becomes a visit to one of the dance halls Carmen vividly describes. Gather together to listen, move and be moved!

This performance is performed in ASL and English and is fully accessible.
