Flamenco Dance in Gardiner

Posted

Gardiner Library presents “Trash Bata” Dance Theater Performance by Bárbara Martínez on Sunday August 7, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. for all ages.
“Trash Bata” is a one-woman dance theater production that uses the language of flamenco to speak to the problem of plastics in our environment.

The “bata de cola” is a long train skirt traditionally used by the female flamenco dancer in Spanish dance. In this piece, instead of the usual skirt made from lively ruffles, bright colors, or polka dots. A bata made from trash follows the dancer with every movement. Bárbara Martínez has an extensive performance career. She has spent a lifetime crafting her performance skills as a dancer and vocal artist, specializing in choreography, composition and musical arrangements. Registration is not required.

More information at gardinerlibrary.org. The library is located at 133 Farmer’s Turnpike in Gardiner.
