Talks, panels, discussions, and presentations featuring 12 resistant, queer, indigenous, international choreographers of the Latinx diaspora raising their voices towards collective liberation every Wednesday on Zoom and Facebook Live, at 4pm. RSVP for exclusive access to Q&A's and important updates on the Festival

FLACC (Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers) 2020's featured dance makers are responding to the curatorial theme "El Grito" with a contemporary and emergent act of solidarity during a global pandemic. "El Grito" (The Scream) is referring to a historically rooted demonstration that takes place every year on September 16th, marking Mexican Independence Day. El Grito originally took place in 1810, when Father Miguel Hidalgo urged the people to revolt against Spanish rule in Dolores, Mexico with a call and response speech that included crying out the names of revolutionaries that led to their liberation. The call and response of El Grito (call the name... respond "¡VIVA!") is used all over Latin America as a way to bring the people together for social change.
