Breaking Boundaries in Flamenco

March 13 to March 16, 2019

Join us for an exciting weekend of performances and presentations focusing on the transnational politics and poetics of flamenco. Featuring international guest artists & speakers, the symposium highlights artists breaking conceptual and cultural boundaries. Events will focus on the socio-political and economic resources which shape flamenco as a globalized and commercialized dance form and emphasize the creative and cultural frameworks artists use to resist social and economic limitations.

Thank you to the following sponsors for making this symposium possible: Departments of Oberlin College and Conservatory: Dance, Politics, Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, Hispanic Studies, and Ethnomusicology; the Dean of Students;The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant for the Oberlin Center for Languages and Cultures; and The Ellen Johnson Fund for Contemporary Art.
