Broken Embraces

Pain and passion; you can't have one without the other. That sentiment, beautifully and strikingly expressed by Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, is at the root of Brazilian dance company Mimulus' work, Dolores.

Drawing direct inspiration from Almodóvar's oeuvre, which includes Volver, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, and with popular Spanish songs, Dolores blends ballroom, samba, and other social dances to illustrate the complexity of relationships.

The evening-length work and the troupe make their Scottsdale debut at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second Street.

Should the show leave you inspired to try out the samba, stick around for the post-performance Ball in the Hall, which begins at 9 p.m. and is free to all ticketholders. Tickets to see Mimulus perform are $29, $39, and $49 via www.tickets.scottsdaleperformingarts.com or by calling 480-499-8587.
