Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers is celebrating its 6th Annual festival featuring resistant, queer, indigenous, and hybrid choreographers of the Latinx diaspora. With 2 weeks of performance, classes and panel discussions, Bridges & Bones is replacing ideas of borders and walls that separate and erase Latinxs in the US, by creating cultural bridges, honoring ancestors and building artistic alliances to support and unify 15 choreographers over 2 weekends at Dance Mission Theater and Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archives. Dance Mission Theater features 3 featured choreographers performing complete works representing a unique Latinx dance cannon; from a politically charged solo challenging notions of the public gaze on Latinidad, gender and sexuality by Miguel Gutierrez(NY), desmadre (messiness) by the collaborative choreographers of Primera Generación(Riverside/LA), and the historical work of José Limón in Exiles, performed by Gabriel Mata(SF) and Kelisha Gardeen.
Master class with Primera Generación Fri. 11/15 10am-12pm at Dance Mission. Post show Q& A Sat. 11/16.
