EL SUEÑO DESCRIPTION
EL SUEÑO will reveal the complex navigation between two cultures that is inherent in the first generation American experience. Sometimes brutal and other times beautiful, EL SUEÑO will balance delicately on the edge of Americanism and Mexican Mestizo, and will provide a clear, culturally relevant, and critical message- “This brown girl knows how to resist, rise and thrive.”
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION (5-6:45PM)
This movement workshop will afford dancers the opportunity to explore and embody concepts in both power and vulnerability. Attendees can expect bottom-heavy beats, momentum driven movement, rebound, and athleticism within the class. The class will consist of exploration, skill building, and phrase work for EL SUEÑO.
AUDITION DESCRIPTION (7-8PM)
Alicia seeks to cast 5-7 dancers for EL SUEÑO. The ability to physically embody the narrative is of particular importance and it is for this reason that a minimum goal of 70% P.O.C. cast has been set. However, this workshop is a space for all people and all cultures, and ALL are encouraged to attend regardless of racial or ethnic identity. (audition 7-8pm)
