Fiesta y Resistencia | ATB Financial Arts Barn | Thursday, 08. February 2018

This year CHINOOK SERIES also presents: FIESTA Y RESISTENCIA
We have three major events happening.

1) Theatrical Piece: BROKEN TAILBONE
Feb 8 @ 9pm
Feb 9 @ 7pm and 10:45pm
Last show is bi-lingual
In Broken Tailbone, Carmen Aguirre leads a Latinx dance lesson, weaving together hilarious and moving stories of her experiences in the hidden world of dance halls in Canada while DJ Don Pedro creates an irresistible musical environment to get even the most reluctant dancer up on her feet! Daring, sexy, and, above all, fun, Carmen's performance is an extended salsa lesson that flows into her remarkable stories of intimacy, politics, culture. Everyone in the audience dances as the evening becomes a visit to one of the dance halls Carmen vividly describes. Gather together to listen, move and be moved!
Warnings: You will be up on your feet during this show! Limited places to sit!
Duration: 75 minutes
