9:00 PM-10:30 PM

Audiences and critics raved about the premiere of this piece in June, 2014.

Due to a sell-out at the Sandbox Theater at Miami Theater Center, many were turned away on the last night of that run.

Now Miami dance audiences can all experience this powerful piece – selected by The Miami Herald as one of the season’s five best dance bets – in the larger, yet intimate, setting of the On.Stage Black Box.

SEE: Bare Bones Review


“Bare Bones opens up a world of unfiltered truths from the tangled-up stories of two bodies that leave traceable marks made of bones, flesh, tortures, and memories evoking dreamy scenarios. The work is concerned with the dominating disconnected behaviors amongst humans. A friendly glance into the eye or touch are becoming endangered senses for our specie as a feeling of transforming into moving machineries covered with flesh grows irreversibly.

“Bare Bones exposes human and geographic separations invading our societies. Tightly stacked-up defensive bodily walls armor us as man-made borderlines stretch us apart as strangers. The work contrasts poetic visuals with gruesome disfigurations empowering a message where human contact and love are at the verge of extinction, while fervently desired.

“Bare Bones draws a metaphoric labyrinth representing the reality of the present we cannot escape. A present of who we are and are made of, where tender human encounter has a slight chance.”

Carlota Pradera, originally from Barcelona, is a freelance performer, choreographer, and educator.

Carlota holds a BA in performance and choreography from Florida International University. In 2013, she and Lazaro Godoy formed GodoyPradera Projects to enable independent artist-driven creations in Miami.

Lazaro Godoy studied at The National Arts School in Havana, Cuba and graduated from New World School of the Arts, Miami, in 1996. An NFAA Arts Competition first prize sent him to study at The Juilliard School in New York under scholarship.

He currently lives and works in Miami.
