Joyce Theater

A multicultural, all-female percussive trio based in the rhythms of Tap, Flamenco, and Kathak dance, Soles of Duende make their Joyce debut with their feature-length production, Can We Dance Here? In this riveting performance of rhythmic exchange, Amanda Castro (Tap), Arielle Rosales (Flamenco), and Brinda Guha (Kathak) elevate the joy of true collaboration across disciplines. Rooted in all that their crafts provide them, and in dialogue with live music, this trio invites audiences to pause, witness, and receive three women boldly taking the floor here and now.
