Performance by Xianix Barrera Flamenco Company
Inspired by the concepts and experiences of duende, our inner creative spirit, Social Engagement Performance Artist Arielle Rosales brings together a powerhouse cast of women movement artists and rhythm makers to explore the birth and flow of creativity as an inherently feminine phenomenon. Assuming we must be fully present to receive this creative conception and ride its energetic waves, Rosales prioritizes process over product through facilitating a series of creative labs with the collaborating performers in order to hold a safe space for a holistic creative experience. Join us in a celebration of life, art, and womanhood and follow @ariellerosales @houseofduende #permissiontobe to be part of the process!
“The duende is not in the throat: the duende surges up, inside, from the soles of the feet.’ Meaning, it’s not a question of skill, but of a style that’s truly alive: meaning, it’s in the veins: meaning, it’s of the most ancient culture of immediate creation.” — Federico García Lorca
Bring a blanket and a friend and join us for this free performance at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Harbor View Lawn, as part of Gibney Dance Company’s dance-mobile series! No RSVP required.
NEXT TRIBE is a band on the mission of crossing musical genres and breaking the boundaries of rock, ethnic, jam-band and pop. The unique sound of this band is made up of high energy Rock and Roll with the ethnic flavor of Flamenco guitar, Afro/Latin and Brazilian rhythms, as well as Native American, Aboriginal and eastern Indian influences. These ethnic influences came naturally to each member growing up in Brooklyn, the melting pot of New York City’s many cultures and musical sounds. A Next Tribe live performance is a full on experience for all senses. Mesmerizing and intense, passionate and energetic, bitter and sweet. From well crafted songs with hooks that will stick in your head for days, to freewheeling improvisations that make each performance a unique experience. The band formed in the spring of 2000 and within weeks scored gigs in venues such as The Mercury Lounge, The Knitting Factory and also landed daily gigs at the legendary Wetlands Preserve. In March of 2004 Next Tribe was chosen by Relix Magazine along with 9 other bands to appear on the Jam Off compilation CD. They were chosen out of 200 bands nationwide and were voted in the top 5 for the best unsigned bands for the Jam Off competition.
