Hola community!

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).

Tickets in advance are $20/ at the door $27

Purchase tickets here: http://flacc2016.bpt

*We will have post-show panel discussions led by Ernesto Sopprani, Sandra Pacheco and Catherine Marie Davalos

*a cultural welcoming from Kanyon Sayers Rood, a representative from the Ohlone First Nation.

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.

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.

Dear Subscribers,

Piñata Dance Collective has been a little quiet for a few months.  Working on grant writing and preparations to present the 3rd Annual ¡FLACC! 2016 Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers.  This year, we have doubled our capacity and are featuring 14 Latinx Choreographers from the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New Mexico, Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras, and Venezuela!!! Our programming includes 3 distinct evenings of cutting-edge dance honoring the intersectionality of our struggles with a regenerative platform of visibility and resistance by Latinx contemporary dance artists.

Ready to see some dance? don’t tell me the last time you saw a modern-contemporary dance performance was back in college in your art appreciation class?  Oh where or where do our audiences go?  Somehow, dance seems to be the least attended of the art forms unless you are a dancer yourself or you happen to live with one. Lets break that paradigm! Come support 7 amazingly talented choreographers and their collaborators from the Latin@ diaspora at Mission Cultural Center September 25-27, join the panel discussion at CIIS on Sept. 19 and take some low-cost master classes during Latin American History Month with incredible teachers .  ~~~Allow yourself to move and be moved~~~~~  Contact us about bringing your students for a discounted group rate.

*Get your PRE-SALE TICKETS until Sept. 1st.* Prices go up in 2 weeks!* For all details about our SHOW, FREE PANEL DISCUSSION and our FLACC Friday’s TEACHING SERIES in September. See www.flaccdanza.org

ALSO, check out my latest piece this weekend 8/15-8/16 at 7pm. Reception to follow!

“Broken” 10 minute solo

opening for JoAnn Selisker’s piece “What’s Best For You”Inline image 1

“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.

https://www.facebook.com/events/1443001836007888/

Location: SafeHouse Arts, 1 Grove, San Francisco (across the street from the Main Library above Burger King- civic center Bart.)

Time: Saturday/Sunday 8/15-8/16 7pm- *Don’t Be Late!*  And join us for a reception after the show.
