Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville is hosting the Peruvian dance group Adu for a free performance.

Stuart’s will host the group from Sept. 22-26, and will take Adu into area schools for workshops and performances; present field trips at the Opera House; and work with both Ohio University dance students and Factory Street Dance Studio for special opportunities.

In addition to the free show at Stuart’s, Adu will perform shorter workshops and performances in Athens noon this Tuesday at Ohio University’s Baker Center for a lunchtime concert series (second floor) and the Athens Public Library at 7:30 p.m. These events are all free.

Adu is a non-profit arts group from Peru. Their original piece, “Sigo Siendo,” addresses themes of maintaining cultural identity under pressure of assimilation and revaluing ancient traditions in a modern world. According to a news release, “it is an exciting, athletic fusion of Peruvian dance.”

In addition to presenting the 50 minute original work, “Sigo Siendo” members of Adu will lead workshops in percussion, charango, traditional wind instruments and dance! Director Antonio Vilchez is a national champion and professor in dance. As a choreographer, actor, Afro-Peruvian dancer and percussionist, he has represented Peru in festivals in Chile, France, Greece, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Canada and the United States.
