Class: Mapping la frontera with Cristina Goletti

Thursday, April 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am CST

In this class, we will work through somatics and improvisation scores and tasks to investigate our own borders-la frontera. Used in the context of Gloria Anzaldua’s, the borderland becomes a metaphor for the ambiguity, fluidity, complexity of physical and virtual barriers, edges, and lands we cross in our everyday life. We will play with ideas of multiple centers, re-orienting our self around our own or someone else’s center. This class will ultimately guide the participants to better understand the ecology of the crossroad between the multiple I within the self and outside of the self.

Artist and educator, Cristina Goletti is Chair and Associate Professor of the Theatre and Dance Department at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and serves as the President for the World Dance Alliance Americas (WDAA).
