FLACC 2019: Bridges & Bones

​The 6th Annual Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers

Nov. 23 @ 6pm 2019


Zoe Klein Productions presents Womb Seed

Choreographed by Zoë Klein

Gallery Exhibit of Womb Seed belly cast art viewings are Wed Nov. 20-23, 2019.

Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archives (BAMPFA). ​


The Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers is celebrating its 6th Annual festival featuring resistant, queer, indigenous, and hybrid choreographers of the Latinx diaspora.  

With 2 weeks of performance, master classes and panel discussions, Bridges & Bones is replacing ideas of borders and walls that separate and erase Latinxs in the US, by creating cultural bridges, honoring ancestors and building artistic alliances that unify 15 dance companies over 2 weekends at Dance Mission Theater and Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archives(BAMPFA). ​

​The 2019 theme BRIDGES & BONES implies the literal bridge to cross from San Francisco to the East Bay, as well as, the metaphorical bridges and alliances needed to overcome the walls that separate Latinx communities and families across local and national borders.

​FLACC artists with varied experiences of intersectional Latinx identities carry the weight of cultural bridge building in the bones of their own body or felt through a lineage of our Chicanx/Latinx ancestors. Bridges & Bones offers an opportunity for FLACCistas and audiences to come together to share this weight together with a refreshing and contemporary experience of inclusion. Having a visible presence in a performance gallery, the architecture of a museum, the proscenium stage,  reputable dance studios and an engaging artist discussion at one of the top universities in the state of California, FLACC is thrilled to offer dynamic new programs expanding across the Bay Bridge for 2 consecutive weeks this fall from SF to the East Bay.

Born, Never Asked. @ Dance Mission Theater, SF

An acrobatic dance theater piece & art installation about international adoption

Fri & Sat Feb. 2-3 @ 8pm // Sun Feb. 4 @ 7pm

"Born, Never Asked." is a full length new work by choreographer, Zoë Klein, based on her story of adoption from Colombia. The ensemble of five includes immigrants from Mexico, Vietnam, Russia and Colombia.  The performers’ physicality is experienced through powerful partner lifts, multi-level suspensions, sculptural levers and inventive inversions.  Klein's cutting edge movement genre of aerials, acrobatics, and imagery delivers a visual feast along with deep meaning and complex emotions.  Klein asks: How can one achieve wholeness with conflicting loyalties between lands, languages, families and cultures?  


Enjoy pre-show interactive Gallery Installation and special Field Trip events facilitated by Adoption Museum Project.
