Contempo-what?: "Contemporary” Dance Genres in Latin America
UC Berkeley’s Dance Studies and Performance in the Americas working groups, in collaboration with the Center for Latin American Studies and the Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers, invite you to the 2016 artist panel discussion. We will feature four choreographers: San Francisco-based Sebastian Hernandez; Sabrina Castillo Galluser from Guatemala; Zoe Klein from Colombia/SF; and Diana Lara from Honduras/Mexico/SF Bay Area. They will discuss the issues of indigeneity, queerness, and latinidad from a hemispheric perspective.
Bélgica del Rio and Juan Manuel Aldape Muñoz, Ph.D. students in the performance studies program at UC Berkeley, will facilitate a discussion about contemporary dance across national borders where dance genres have colonial and cultural legacies different from the United States.
This event is free and open to the public. Join us to learn about the artists’ work and to ask questions. Food and refreshments provided.
