Outside the Box

The Outside the Box event series features performances by YoungArts alumni on the YoungArts Plaza. The multidisciplinary series brings original performances and new works to YoungArts' campus.

On May 12, 2018, director, filmmaker and choreographer Yara Travieso (2005 YoungArts Winner in Dance) combined elements of theater, dance, cinema and music, “El Ciclón” is a “wild neo-feminist mythology trapped inside a 1950s B-movie psychological thriller with singing, dancing, and just enough alligators”. Transforming the YoungArts Plaza into a South Florida swamp, Travieso set the stage for heroine Ava, who finds herself in a precarious situation facing an impossible moral decision.
