A proposal for movement, expression, and communication.  The workshop will begin with group games for leaders and followers, so that the participants come to know and trust each other.  Then we will briefly discuss movement and popular ballets from the 20s and 30s, and their relation to both current and ancient ritual dances.  Videos of creative work with movement in Zapatista communities will be screened.  Finally, a theme will be presented and divided into subsections, according to the size of the group and the number of participants, and each group will take responsibility for one part.


Anadel Lynton is co-founder and researcher at the National Center for Dance Research, Documentation and Information (Cenidi-Danza, 1983) at the National Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico.  In addition, she creates and performs as an action artist, presents street performances and games with public participation, and is a choreographer, and teacher.
