Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America

La Quinta del Lobo, Colombia

Project

La Quinta del Lobo is an interdisciplinary performance group formed by electronic artists, musicians and dancers from Bogotá. In Cuentos de la Mangleria (The Mangrove Tales – the name given to the collection of stories and popular literature passed down through oral tradition in the Pacific region of Colombia), the Artistic Director Carmen Gil Vrolijk and her collaborators investigate a memory that refuses to disappear. Myths, legends, and indigenous dances and music are rendered through a contemporary lens. The use of video and the interactivity of stage action and lighting create a lush landscape for the setting of these stories as we rethink our present. For this work, the company is collaborating with the Afro-Colombian dance company: Sankofa Danzafro. La Quinta del Lobo tours with the support of Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America in 2015-2016. Click on calendar for all tour dates.
