“Dancing Identities: Disrupting the Latina Myth”

Carolina Caballero (Dance)
February 28, 4-5:30 p.m.
Jane Grant Conference Rm
330 Hendricks Hall

Carolina Caballero Segura’s works seek to debunk stereotypical images of Latina women as represented in American popular culture. The critical thinking behind her creative projects stems from a desire to disrupt and subvert existing regimes of representation.  In the United States, it is undeniable that the mass media and Hollywood dominates the popular perception of what Latinas are.  By evoking the kinesthetic and symbolic power of dance in the media, these means have evoked images of an ethnic “other.” Caballero Segura’s work critically explores such dominant, hegemonic assumptions about dance and Latina identity.

Performance:  “Not about me.”
