MEXICO MAYA / DZUL DANCE
Saturday, March 15, 2014
El Teatro, El Museo del Barrio
4:00pm - 5:00pm
Dzul Dance will fuse dance contortion and acrobatics as a means to communicate indigenous pre-Hispanic and Mexican culture and create bridges between contemporary art and historical heritage. By transforming bodies into earthbound forces of nature Dzul breaks physical and cultural boundaries. This daring and unique company connects the ancient and the modern in order to illuminate the vast array of drama and beauty inherent to the natural world and the human condition.
In celebration of women’s #herstory month, we will be featuring Latina artists throughout the month!
We kick this off with Betsy Casañas, an artist, community activist and educator, born and raised in “The Badlands” of North Philadelphia’s barrio. Most recently she participated in Los Muros Hablan, a mural project in East Harlem “El Barrio” NYC. Check it out at 1664 Park Avenue (bet. 117th and 118th St.)
