Eveoke Dance Theatre has long celebrated heroic women. One of the earliest, most memorable works by company founder Gina Angelique was “Soul of a Young Girl” (1996), based on Anne Frank’s diary. And a 2003 piece, “Women Rebels,” honored some three dozen local activists.
Eveoke’s current resident choreographer, Ericka Aisha Moore, has continued that tradition. Last season, she created “Las Mariposas,” based on the real-life story of sisters in the Dominican Republic who were murdered in 1960 because of their activism against the dictator Rafael Trujillo.
