DEL Mini-Workshop: Flamenco

Sunday, April 18 | 2:30-5:30pm Eastern
Facilitated by Ann Biddle and Felice Santorelli, with guest artist Nélida Tirado

Explore dance education practices dedicated to artistry, collaboration, and dance-making in a 3-hour embodied and interactive Zoom workshop inspired by the work of Pillow Lab artist Nélida Tirado. Tirado has received international recognition for her “grace, style, and dynamics as a Spanish/flamenco and Latin dancer.” 

In Dime Quién Soy, Tirado embarks on a triumphant and challenging journey “dancing between cultures” in celebration of her authentic self. This non-traditional flamenco work uses music and dance to transcend and blur the lines of politics, race, and identity.

Participants will also learn about the rich, cultural history of the art of flamenco and DELve into the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site to discover how the art of flamenco has evolved from the past to the present. Open to all levels and those interested in embodied dance education practices. No previous dance experience required.

Early bird special access! Participants that register by April 14th are invited to attend Nélida Tirado: Inside the Pillow Lab April 15 at 7pm Eastern, screened on YouTube, immediately followed by a intimate Zoom Q&A conversation with Tirado and collaborators.
