Dance and poetry to commemorate International Dance Day


It's International Dance Day (IDD) today, hurray!

IDD is a global celebration of dance, created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO.


Watch one of the most wonderful dance performances ever, Kazuo Ohno's sequence from The Written Face (1995), a perfect example of a visual poem!


Kazuo Ohno's fluent micromovements recall those of the birds we distantly hear as well as of the water he delicately touches, subtly integrating his body within the environment surrounding him. His feminine outfit, the twilight and the city outskirts... all contribute to create a fascinating sense of in-betweeness, questioning and expanding sex, time and space boundaries, which so rigidly construe our identies.
Just a brief comment on the song used "Amapola", a traditional Spanish tune, whose lyrics, together with the piano solo with which the video opens, contribute to create a feeling of solitude and melancholy: "¿dónde vas tan triste y sola?"

Long live dance!

Virtual meeting to discuss TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

Dear Bookworms,
As you know, the COVID-19 crisis has forced us to cancel the meeting scheduled for April, 17. The education authorities have made available the Webex technology, which enables us to hold virtual meetings, so we will be using it for our discussion of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird.




If you want to join the meeting but don't have the book with you, there are many websites from which you can legally download the full text for free (here) or where you can read it online (here)
You may also want to listen to the author's only recorded interview about the novel:



Participation is limited to the first 12 students who sign up. If you want to join the virtual meeting, sign up here.
Once you've signed up, go to https://eduxunta.webex.com/meet/alosada and you will have access to our meeting room.

I will soon upload some discussion questions that may guide your reading. Stay tuned!
