Between Worlds, a dance theatre piece that tells a story by fusing Flamenco dancing with "cross-cultural percussion," opens March 20 in a limited Off-Broadway engagement. Previews began March 4.

Created by Grammy nominee Pablo Croce (director-producer) and the internationally-known choreographer-performer Siudy, the "Flamenco fantasia" dances its heart out at New World Stages' Stage 1, at 340 West 50th Street, for a run to May 22.

The show — with a full title of Siudy: Between Worlds (Siudy: Entre Mundos) — is billed this way: "Between Worlds bursts through artistic and cultural boundaries, transporting us to a future where water has all but disappeared and desperate tribes war with each other and the elements for survival. Only one force is powerful enough to save humanity from itself — love. Twenty-two performers from around the globe drum and dance in a kinetic and provocative blend of Flamenco, urban dance and percussion to create a multi-sensory theatrical experience for the whole family."
