PCDE is designed to thank public school teachers for their significant investment in hosting an EdM student at their schools, and a chance for their high school students to gain insight into the student experience at Mason Gross Dance. EdMs and UDW Dancers will staff the event. Please see below for students’ individual assignments. All students staffing the event will receive an email with a detailed schedule for the day.

“Flamenco is synonymous with Spanish culture. Yet, since its inception, theorists have sidelined the fundamental contribution of Afro-Andalusians to this art form.”
Gurumbé: Afro-Andalusian Memories, a feature-length documentary from anthropologist Miguel Ángel Rosales, explores the contribution of Afro-Andalusians to flamenco as the art form developed. Gurumbé (72 min, in Spanish with English subtitles) has won numerous awards in the festival circuit and it is currently premiering around the world.
Join us for this special event in La Nacional’s beautiful, intimate performance space. There will be a screening of the film with the director, and a flamenco performance by dancer Yinka Ese Graves, who is featured in the film, with live musicians. There will also be a round table discussion with the performers and the director, moderated by K. Meira Goldberg. In addition to organizing numerous conferences and flamenco events with the Foundation for Iberian Music, Goldberg is the author of Flamenco on the Global Stage and Sonidos Negros: On the Blackness of Flamenco (forthcoming, Oxford Univ. Press).
Beverages will be available at a cash bar. This event is all ages.
