PROXIMITIES/DISTANCES: Contemporary Spanish and Latin American Performance Theories and Practices

Curated by Cristina Colmena (PhD Candidate, NYU Spanish Department) and Ana Sánchez Acevedo (PhD Candidate, CUNY Graduate Center)

PROXIMITIES/DISTANCES is a two-day event, exploring ideas and practices of proximity and distance in contemporary Spanish and Latin American theatre, performance and dance through the talks with creators and performers. Drawing on the current interest in relational strategies and investigating the connections between art and audiences, the aesthetic and the socio-political, it will examine a diverse range of dramaturgies that bring these different media into contact.
