“Trash Bata” performance
August 7, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Will speak to the problem of plastics in our environment
Gardiner Library presents “Trash Bata” dance theater performance by Bárbara Martinez on Sunday August 7 from 11 a.m. to noon 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.
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.
