Jersey City Theater Center presents Mignolo Dance!

Manifested Destiny is the first evening-length work of ~mignolo dance~, a contemporary dance company based in Metuchen, NJ and directed by sisters Charly & Eriel Santagado. The piece explores American culture through the lens of great American literature across recent history. From Walt Whitman to Maggie Nelson, Manifested Destiny calls upon the work of 13 American writers with a wide range of backgrounds and styles, which represent the 13 original colonies. Over the course of the evening, the perspectives of these authors are examined through precise, language-inspired choreography that highlights how they clash and coincide.
