Living in Desmadre





Join us for a seven week series on Monday nights at Pieter where we explore desmadre (messiness) as embodiment. Collectively, we will immerse ourselves in a fusion of Latin social dance techniques, dialogue, affect, and rasquache movement formations as a way of reveling in (un)known sites of belonging and dancing.



The classes will be composed of the different elements that our collective uses to contextualize our experiences. Come revel in quebradita stylings, salsa aesthetics, poc-chuc technique, and hybrid formations.



Living in desmadre classes will end with a final event, En Fiesta with Primera Generación Dance, on June 27 @ 6:30pm dedicated to sharing virtual space communally through dance, dialogue, and food.

Primera Generación Dance Collective is a collaborative group based in Riverside, California and formed by Alfonso Cervera, Rosa Rodriguez-Frazier, Irvin Manuel Gonzalez and Patricia “Patty” Huerta that focuses on the visibilization of Mexican American corporeality through movement-based exploration, process and performance. The collective finds its roots in experimental choreography and research that focuses on Mexican American identity and it’s many marginalized connections.
