Augusto Soledade, M.F.A., associate professor in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS), premiered his latest full length work, “Shade,” on May 24 and 25, 2017 in the Gleason Room, Miami Beach. “Shade” was created for six dancers and delves into identity, identification, and the question, “What are you?” Soledade did extensive research into these issues including exploring “Voguing,” a movement in NYC in the late sixties and seventies as a means for young urban outcasts to band together for strength and social acceptance.

“Shade” included an original score created by Jessica Muñiz-Collado, M.F.A., and an art piece by Kandy Lopez, M.F.A. All three are faculty in the Department of Performing and Visual Arts in CAHSS.
