Juntos: QTPOC Dancemakers Gathering

I feel so much joy, honor, and privilege to have co-lead the inaugural session Juntos with Liz Duran Boubion at LINES Dance Center. We attempted to create a space and time for Latino/a/x contemporary choreographers, uncovering what it means today to make art under/through/against the banner of “latinidad.” Thanks Miguel Gutiérrez, Adrian AriasIrvin GonzalezAlfonso CerveraKarla Quintero, Jocelyn Reyes, José Navarrete, Javier Stell-Fresquez, Debby KajiyamaRosa Rodriguez-Frazier, Gabriel Mata, and David Herrera for trusting us with your time, bodies, and work. What a treat to be in one room with so many fabulous, inspiring, funny, insightful, caring, nurturing, and relentless dance makers/poets/artists/singers/visionaries.
