*Marcando el Terreno--Flamenco & Feminism*
*Vox Populi*
*April 6 & 7*

A weekend long exploration into the art of Flamenco through the lenses of
feminism and womanhood

Elba Hevia y Vaca, Artistic Director and founder of Pasión y Arte (PyA),
and Tina Plokarz, independent curator and member at Vox Populi are pleased
to present *Marcando el Terreno —Flamenco and Feminism*. This two-evening
celebration at Vox Populi features the first showing of *La Bolivianita*, a
new work-in-progress solo performance by Hevia y Vaca, followed by a
conversation with the artist, and the screening of the award winning
documentary *Impulso* (2017) which illuminates the life and art of
brilliant queer feminist flamenco dancer and choreographer Rocίo Molina
(Spain), followed by a panel discussion with Philadelphia based dance
artists. This two day event will be held on April 6 and 7 at Vox Populi,
319 N. 11th Street. Tickets $8-12.

*La Bolivianita* incorporates spoken word, the de-construction of modern
Flamenco choreography, and culminates in an interactive dialogue with the
audience. *La Bolivianita* is directed by world renowned Flamenco
innovator, choreographer, and feminist artist Belen Maya (Spain), and will
premier in its entirety in the Fall of 2019 at the Fringe Festival. A
conversation exploring dance, race, identity, and current experimental
practices in contemporary Flamenco dance will follow the performance.

In the feature-long award winning documentary film *Impulso* (2017)
director Emilio Belmonte sheds light on the creative process of acclaimed
queer flamenco dancer and choreographer Rocίo Molina (Spain), whose
performances equitably combine astonishing improvisation and traditional
technique. The documentary follows Molina as she conceives of and prepares
for her innovative new show *Caída del Cielo*, which premiered at Paris'
Chaillot National Theater in 2016. A panel discussion about improvisation
and experimentation in contemporary dance will contextualize the film
