The inaugural Latinx Movement Festival in DC will bring five movement artists throughout the nation and locally to perform at Dance Place as well as facilitate a panel discussion and open to the public workshops. Themes within the program center on researching binational identity, immigrant narratives, identity politics, gender, and queerness within the Latinx/e viewpoint. 

The festival highlights how the definition of movement is not directed to target a specific genre and is open to the diasporic range of Latinx/e movement contributions throughout the nation. The title of the festival “latinx/e” implies the presence of socio-political awareness (and tension) of the contributions of this opportunity and the culture that is currently being observed and experienced by the Latinx/e community.

 

This festival is in partnership with Manuel Cuellar / Corazón Folklórico DC. Additional support comes from the Latinx Hispanic Dancers United, directed by David Herrera in San Francisco, CA. It is made possible by funding by the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities - Performance Events and Festival Grant FY24 and as a co-presentation from Dance Place.
