August 5, 2019 -- Colombian artist Paola Escobar will explore displacement during her tenure as choreographer-in-residence at the Annenberg Community Beach House, Santa Monica officials announced last week.
During her residency from July 8 to October 9 Escobar will create a new dance performance on the themes of "nomadism, migration and home within contemporary society," Cultural Affairs officials said.
Tentatively titled "Darning & Patching without a Nail" the site-specific work will be performed Friday October 4 to Sunday October 6 from from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., when the sun sets.
Escobar's work "draws upon her Latin-American background and her experience with Flamenco, African dance, social dance and contemporary artmaking," cultural officials said.According to Escobar's website her Borderline Movement work "exists in the liminal space in-between disciplines, genres, styles and forms and questions the boundaries that separate them.
To learn more about Escobar's progress and work, follow her weekly blog posts at beachhouseair.blogspot.com.
