Baile Folklórico Boliviano

Earlier this year Arlington County Cultural Affairs Division asked me to conduct a cultural documentation project with the county’s Bolivian dance troupes.  I’ll be working with two folklore graduate students, Rhina Ascensio and Amy Slade, observing and filming rehearsals and performances and conducting extensive oral histories with the leadership of Comite Pro Boliviana, as well as individual dancers.

The project will include an interpreted performance by three dance troupes at Lubber Run amphitheater on July 21 (details to follow) and a photo exhibition and film screening at Artisphere in the early fall.

I’ll be posting regular updates on the project through July 2012.
