You are cordially invited to bear witness to Geografía : An Evening of Contemporary Dance Centering LatinX Narratives on Friday, June 21st at 8:30 PM at Esquina Tango in Austin, Texas. This intimate, evening-length performance aims to celebrate the diverse perspectives and lenses that Latinx dance makers in Texas bring to the shifting dance landscape.
Curated by Bonnie Cox and Erica Saucedo, Geografía creates a platform for LatinX artists to share their unique narratives that tend to be overlooked by dominant culture, and bypassed in the field of contemporary dance. The title is a nod to the complicated history of the term Latino/@/X and how we use the identifier today.
Featured Artists include Bonnie Cox, Sharon Marroquin, Sarah Sanchez, Erica Saucedo, and Carolina Sirias.
The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion centered around where dance and LatinX identity intersect, as self-determined by each artist.
Geografía will take place at Esquina Tango, 209 Pedernales Street, Austin, Texas 78702.
Tickets are sliding scale: $10-$25. Seating is limited. After artists are paid, proceeds will go toward establishing Geografiía as an annual dance festival. Donations are welcome.
