Latina Dance Project To Be In Residence At TWU


DENTON — The Latina Dance Project, a performance group focused on the contemporary artistic expression of Latina experience and culture, will conduct two public presentations during the group's weeklong residence at Texas Woman's University.

A lecture/demonstration scheduled Wednesday, April 16, will combine information about the unique perspectives of the Latina artist/scholar with performances of original choreography by members of the group. The event will take place from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in Studio 210 of the DGL Building, located at the northeast corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive.

The lecture/demonstration will be followed from 4 to 6 p.m. by a studio performance of Embodying Borders, featuring four solo dances created by the group's members, in Studio 328 of Pioneer Hall, located on Bell Avenue.

Both events are free and open to the public.

The Latina Dance Project is comprised of TWU doctoral student Juanita Suarez, TWU alum Eluza Santos, and Licia Perea and Eva Tessler. The group will be in residence in TWU's Department of Dance from Monday, April 14 to Thursday, April 17.

The members will teach classes in modern dance technique, dance composition, improvisation and cultural studies. They also will present their research on Latina culture and art.
