Come this May, stories of survival in the realm of the female body politic will be articulated through dance, re-mothering stories in the #MeToo movement and a human piñata at the end of her rope.
Piñata45 : Exalted, Consumed, Destroyed
May 11-12, 2018
Co-Presented by Piñata Dance Collective and Dance Mission Theater
Last November, the hot pink PussyFleet, choreographed by Liz Duran Boubion for the Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreograpers (FLACC) thrilled audiences in a fiercely provocative response to the “grab her by the pussy” conversation that the commander in chief carried into his presidency in 2017.
The directors of San Francisco’
s beloved Dance Mission Theater, believed in our artistic response so strongly, that they generously offered to co-present the development of #DontGrab in an evening-length production this Spring. Hurray!
The work is written and danced by members of the Piñata Dance Collective:
Liz Duran Boubion, Issachar Curbeeon, Andreina Maldonado, Dominique Nigro, Kristen Rulifson and Ronja Ver. Themes we are working with:
Re-possessed rituals of the Latinx Diaspora,
The reflection of racism in the mirror of an African American child with body dysmorphia.
Unveiling the hidden fatalities of beauty in the context of Miss Venezuela, Cosmetic Surgery and democracy.
Domestic Violence, Ivana and the #MeToo Movement.
Inhale….. Exhale……Just that.
See a glimpse of #DontGrab from FLACC on video here.
With grants, business sponsors, volunteers and individual donorslike you, PDC is raising $15,000 to fund this dance theater production which involves, production costs, venue rental, artist fees and physical training in “Grounded Bungee” techniques. The cost to attend an aerial training weekend workshop in LA to bolster my choreographic vision is $1000 and it Includes equipment, training, and certification… so when I return, I can teach grounded bungee aerial dance to you too!
The Piñata Dance Collective humbly asks you to support our company with as much financial backing, social media sharing and love that you can offer.Donate to Piñata45
As the director of PDC, I thank you for supporting my artistry over the years in big and small ways and I appreciate your value on the arts and culture in our community. I hope that we are serving to meet this need in our society and that you are inspired to come to our show!
Sincerely, Liz Duran Boubion, MFA, RSMT

7 Senses of Contact Improvisation- at Studio Azul, Berkeley, Ca.
*NEW CLASS SUNDAYS MARCH 2017*-
Sight, sound, taste, smell, and the “touching” language of contact improvisation. Investigations and inquiry of the moving body in space and time…from the vast and intricate “articulations” of TOUCH, INTUITION, EQUILIBRIUM (balance) and PROPRIOCEPTION (sensing location from the inside). The inner ear / (h)ear. Somatics.#)*) (note:seemingly arbitrary post-modernist over-punctuation:–:
Idiomatics of Contact Improv meets Exploratory Release Technique and other stuff. Post modern dance techniques broken down slowly with repetition. Expanding vocabulary of physics in contact, improvising with movement score/s -concepts to play with in solo or in contact with others. Returning to neutral. Integrating physical, emotional, mental.
Moving into the Spring Equinox, we’ll gain our equilibrium from a fear-inducing government and focus on developing a heightened awareness of the spidey senses during Women’s history month.
***All genders welcome-(feminists only of course) ***All Levels- (Beginners are welcome).
If Jane Austin had contact improvisation, it would have all made sense!
(Sense and Sensibility= Body and Mind). Find freedom in movement through the IDIOMATICS of the senses, exploratory TECHNIQUES, and the CURIOSITY within creative process.
*INTUITION: (Developing your 6th Sense) Ability to predict and support movement, as well as, opening doors to the unconscious stories of the body/mind. Using aesthetic feedback scores, somatic transference, creative restrictions, blindfolded exercises, RE-membering natural origins and body part mapping.
*EQUILIBRIUM: Finding balance and proprioceptive awareness in solo and in contact with others. Learning anatomically sound pathways of movement, head/tail connection, spiraling in and out of the floor, falling off your axis, turning upside down, working with your range of motion, traveling and changing direction/orientation.
*TOUCH/CONTACT: Where sensitivity and skill are wedded. Increasing fluency and articulation of mindful touch vocabulary. The language of contact is 3-fold: Functional Vocabulary (rolling, pivoting, sliding, pushing, pulling etc…), Sensing systems (auric field/proximal, nervous system, limbic system, muscular, skeletal, cardio vascular…etc) and Relational Contact (giving/receiving, leading/following, supporting, witnessing, sharing, saving ourselves and eachother etc…)
4 SUNDAYS / March 5, 12, 19, 26 3:30pm-6:30pm (3 hour classes) $220 for all 4. $75 non-refundable registration fee to hold your spot)
**Note: Class builds on itself so drop-in is not preferredunless you are an advanced/experienced dancer or you are attending the first classes in sequence. Pro-rated is fine- must contact email below.

I believe FLACC 2016 is even more amazing than I had imagined due to our special guests from Guatemala, New Mexico and Los Angeles and our unique programming featuring *Queer/Trans Latino/a/xs on Friday Dec. 9, *Female Latina Women on Saturday Dec. 10, (both at 8pm) and *Indigenous Contemporary Choreographers on Sunday, Dec. 11 (at 4pm).
Video! Watch what our visiting artists are bringing to San Francisco!
I have to say, that the work of Rosa Rodriguez-Frazier and her collaborators, Joey Navarrete and Primera Generación Dance from Los Angeles, really make me miss home…. Rosa will be in all 3 nights showing a duet with Joey on Friday, a solo performance on Saturday, and a Quartet on Sunday. Brilliantly crafted and poignant material for first-generation Mexican-Americans. https://vimeo.com/141954791Also from Guatemala, Sabrina Castillo’s group, Momentum are staying in my apartment while I shack up with my brother John down the road. Sabrina gave a brilliant talk at the UCB panel last saturday. Momentum is the only contemporary dance company in Guatemala and they are here with us! Thanks to Saturday’s FLACCista, Diana Lara, de Honduras who introduced us! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVQv0lCENag&sns=em
Rulan Tangen’s, Dancing Earth- A bi-local company based in New Mexico and San Francisco standing up for Indigenous treaty rights for the last 10 years. She and her relatives have been dancing with #StandingRock for the last 3 months and are sure to bring us the work that activates and motivates this global society.
Our 3rd Annual Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers ¡FLACC! 2016 is right around the corner and we don’t want you to miss this opportunity to support marginalized Latinx and Native dance makers in our vulnerable political climate. Be sure to purchase tickets on-line because prices rise at the door. http://flacc2016.bpt.me/
Zoe Klein is on the UC Berkeley panel and performing Sunday 12/11, 4pm. Her work stems from her experience as a tans-national adoptee from Colombia.
Also, we are excited to engage in a dialogue with UC Berkeley working groups tomorrow, Saturday Dec. 3rd 1-2:30 PM
FLACC artists Zoe Kein, Sabrina Castillo, Diana Lara and Sebastian Hernandez will be sitting on the panel with 2015 Flaccista and moderator, Juan Manuel Aldape.
And here is my statement about the value of Contemporary Dance for Latin American Communities (a question posed to FLACC artists by Emmaly Wiederholdt for her upcoming article in Stance on Dance (more coming soon):
What is the value of contemporary dance to the Latin American community?
Liz Duran Boubion: I think the value of contemporary dance in Latin American communities or in any community, is subjectively assessed and really varies across borders, economic class and cross-culturally within the diaspora. FLACC is in the process of finding out what that value is for people, by creating this platform for Latinx and Native voices in San Francisco.
As artists, it is easy to say this has tremendous value for us personally, because it affirms that this huge part of our identity (Latinx) has value within the dominant culture of contemporary dance that has historically given limited access to our people. Ballet, Modern Dance, aerial dance, “high art” performance in general, is expensive and requires a lot of compromise and sacrifice for the working class, or undocumented, to both train or attend shows.
For Latinos who are educated, privileged and do have access, I would say that “Tradition”, and in this case, “traditional dance”, is one of the highest values as a way to preserve our culture, which presents a bit of a challenge for FLACC. Contemporary dance threatens to erase that tradition based on the western roots of our movement languages as well as the overtly queer, feminist or indigenous voices we support. However, FLACC is a space for the mestizaje de danza, where the multi-lingual dancer emerges. Meaning, we are versed in different dance styles and can bring our “culturally-mixed bodies” (and voices) to the stage. As the Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers forms this “new tradition”, FLACCistas get to make innovative choices about the amount of “translating” they do for their artistry and for their audiences.
Like the breaking of a Piñata, FLACC breaks stereo-typical portrayals of Latinxs for white audiences, and it breaks the tradition of hetero-normative dances that assign patriarchal gender roles. It also breaks open the “recognizable or familiar” and allows for individuality, a tilted axis of perception and the naked truth of our lived experience to pour out.
The Piñata Dance Collective invites you to be part of the 3rd Annual “¡FLACC! 2016” Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers. Featuring 3 varied performances Dec. 9-11 at Dance Mission Theater in San Francisco. Each evening will be followed by refreshments and a 20 minute panel discussion with 16 local and international artists with our audiences.
With your help, we will be able to pay our 16 amazing choreographers an honorarium and help our visiting artists with lodging and travel costs. Latino and Indigenous voices are most valuable in our country right now and our festival is one of the few spaces where our artists feel supported to tell their story through cutting-edge multi-media dance performance.
So far, we have raised $6000 in Grant funding and we know that ticket sales will help us generate income, but we still need to ensure at least $5000 USD to meet our goal of $15,272.
Any support you can offer monetarily, volunteer, or In-Kind will be greatly appreciated.
This is where your donation will go:
*Help with airfare for 5 dancers from Guatemala! ($1000)
*Lodging plus stipend for Joey Navarrette and Primera Generación Dance- 5 dancers from L.A. ($700) *Travel costs for Rulan Tangen- Indigenous Choreographer from New Mexico ($400)

Thankfully, I was able to get an extension until October 24th for our Indiegogo campaign! I’m reaching out to ask for your support for the 2nd annual “FLACC 2015” campaign on Indiegogo. Your support provides a platform for Latino/a contemporary choreographers to share our artistry, our voices, and get the visibility needed by being part of the ¡FLACC! community.
¡FLACC! Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers is the only festival of its kind on the West Coast and these choreographers are shedding light on relevant themes of today. We have already raised $1095 and our goal is $8000 to pay for all of the production costs including our artists who are patiently waiting for their checks:-)!
Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers
(Ver final de la pagina para leer en Español)
¡FLACC! is the ONLY annual festival on the West Coast celebrating the artistry of Chican@/Latin@ Contemporary Dance Choreographers!
¡Sí, es verdad!
And it’s here in the San Francisco Bay Area!
We are bringing visibility, accessibility and inclusion to underserved Latin@ choreographers and communities.
Imagine September 25, 26 & 27, 2015 at the Mission Cultural Center Theater packed to capacity with 150 people each night and an inspired audience buzzing with excitement to see 7 outstanding local Chican@/Latin@ choreographers making high level dance theater production.
It is our 2nd year and we are quickly growing. Our goal is to triple our audience size from last year within a larger venue and include our fantastic teaching series this year. We just need you! ¡Te necesitamos!
Our artists, dance teachers, administrators and presenters are committed to making contemporary dance performance and practice accessible to under-represented Latin@ communities and beyond.
Your donation will directly support this vision and help us reach our goal this September 2015 event.
With the Partnerships of the Piñata Dance Collective, Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts and the Center for Art and Social Justice at CIIS,
We are producing:
1) 3 Evenings of cutting-edge dance featuring 7 local Bay Area choreographers Sept. 25-27 @MCCLA
2) Low-cost* ¡FLACC! FRIDAYS Teaching Series. Every Friday, twice a day in September @ MCCLA with Bay Area dance educators. *Scholarships are available. See teachers and class descriptions here!
3) FREE ¡FLACC! Panel Discussion at California Institute of Integral Studies. Sept 19, @6pm. Join event page here
¡FLACC! supports emerging and established Dance Artists of the Latin@ Diaspora who are choosing to make dances of the non-traditional, border-crossing, rule-breaking, cutting-edge, queer, avant-garde, contemporary, curious, experimental, abstract, sensitive, hybridized, neo-classical, or revolutionary varieties. For our purposes, choreographers with “Latin American” cultural heritage or ancestry are defined by all countries that speak Spanish, Portuguese, or Indigenous languages in the Americas- from the Borderlands of the US to the tip of South America, including the Caribbean Islands. Indigenous contemporary choreographers of North America and all US-born Chican@s and Latin@s are also invited to apply to this Festival.
¡FLACC! celebrates our heritage, our inclusive identities and our artistic innovations through multi-media contemporary dance performance. We are committed to making contemporary dance practice and performance accessible to underserved Latin@ communities and to creating a platform of connection in the dance community locally and internationally.

Your support brings social change
Inclusión: We aim to create a welcoming space for audiences and artists to deeply engage with unique Latin@ perspectives crossing barriers related to race, place, class, ability, gender and sexual identity. ¡FLACC! is also committed to giving our greater community of Latino@s more access and exposure to contemporary modern and experimental dance forms by offering low-cost dance classes, a free panel discussion with the artists and placing our work on a stage that specifically houses Latin@ artists.
Voces Internacionales: Director, Liz Duran Boubion, is currently working to foster a bridge with contemporary dance artists in Mexico and seeks to invite choreographers from other countries and states as we grow. ¡FLACC! allows us to share our experience and innovation globally with each other as immigrants, locals, mixed-race Latin@’s and international artists within the dance community.
La Raza/Meeting each other: Our sustainability depends on our collaborations with each other and we are rapidly creating a recognizable platform for Latin@ choreographers to meet one another under one roof. Our cultural identities can often become insignificant within the contemporary dance world. ¡FLACC! puts cultural perspective at the center by supporting Latin@ choreographers. To date, the emotional response of ¡FLACC! audiences and the power of our connection to each other is immense. ¡FLACC! allows us to share ideas and experiences with one another, claim our diverse identities and find out who’s out there.

“Broken” 10 minute solo
opening for JoAnn Selisker’s piece “What’s Best For You”
“Broken” is traversing the landscape of a fragmented Piñata with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, ADHD, OCD, depression and a good dose of Dharma wisdom. With a multi-media video and dance performance, “Broken” dissects the nature of impermanence, life and tissue paper.
Please come and give your feedback to the Piñata Dance Collective (Liz Boubion, Emmeline Gonzalez- Beban, Dominique Nigro, Liz Anders). We want your feedback as we develop our piece for FLACC , Mobongui Square, and Piñata En La’Air .
