Pregones/PRTT is proud to partner with Jane Gabriels and PEPATIÁN to present Bronx Artists Now | Pepatián’s Artist Talk: Dancing La Botánica: La Tierra Vive! (the earth is alive) on January 13, 2021.
Dancing La Botánica is a platform for Latino/a/x choreographers, dance makers, and movement artists that helps create connections and remove some of the segregation and isolation that can often foster competition more than cooperation in Latinx dance communities. The project was initiated by Dr. Gabriels and is co-led with dancer/choreographers Beatrice Capote (Associate Professor, Contemporary Dance, Indiana University) and Alicia Díaz (Associate Professor of Dance, University of Richmond, VA). Other participating multidisciplinary artists are: Leenda Bonilla, Melanie Gonzalez, Beverly Lopez. To learn more about them, click on the red tab below.
A refreshingly candid audiovisual conversation about creativity, solidarity, and the bounty of life!
Pepatián and Pregones/PRTT gratefully acknowledge our privilege to be able to work and create on the traditional and ancestral lands and waters of the Weckquasgeek and the Siwanoy Nations.
