    El Festival Encuentro Movimientos Desplegados will feature artists from all around Latin America in dance, performance, workshops and conversation.

    Special guests include Carmen Werner from Spain, Elia Arce from Costa Rica, Vicky Cortés from Costa Rica, Cristina Moura from Brazil, Martha Rosiles from Mexico, Paola Lorenzana from El Salvador and Violeta Luna from Mexico and the United States. “Each of these artists,” says Cortés, who doubles as the festival’s director, “has distilled her own language [of movement].”

    According to Cortés, performances by international artists are a rarity in Central America. Such shows, she believes have the power to bring people from different walks of life together while expanding upon the “heterogeneity of contemporary language.” Thus one of the goals of El Festival Encuentro Movimientos Desplegados is to widen the opportunities available within the region.

    [quote_center]“The active participation of Central America will allow the opening of a dialogue from our lands, from our realities. We have proposed a platform to allows artists and people interested in the expressions from the body to transcend borders so that our performing arts can continue to grow.”[/quote_center]

    The participating artists’ areas of interest vary from the vulnerable neighborhoods of El Salvador to a contemporary look at Mexico’s tradition of honoring the dead. One of Lorenzana’s pieces examines the “Fragmented Woman” in an exercise of “is an exercise in disgust, on the subject of stereotypes, all that means ‘right’ and ‘wrong.’”

    Schedule & Pricing

    Each of the following workshops will be held at the Taller Nacional de Danza and will offer participants the opportunity to sample a piece of the artist’s work while discussing each person’s artistic processes.
