“The Body Questions” Conference Registration Is Open

Registration for our upcoming conference, “The Body Questions: Celebrating Flamenco’s Tangled Roots,” is officially open! Conference attendance is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required. Advance registration is available through Eventbrite. 

On-site registration will also be available both days.

As a reminder, the conference takes place over two days, at two separate venues. October 15 is our performance festival, to be held at FIT (in the Haft Theater).  October 16 is our symposium, to be held at the CUNY Graduate Center (The Segal Theater and room 9204). Through Eventbrite, you may register for one day or both days. You will select your desired date(s) in your shopping cart. 

There are two associated events that are also now on sale.

We will be closing out the conference events with a special performance by flamenco artist Raúl Rodríguez, at La Nacional. This concert is open to the public; conference registration is not required. Space is limited, so be sure to buy your tickets in advance! Tickets are $20 ($15 student/senior) advance, $25 /$20 at the door.

The concert is at 8:00. The conference is scheduled to conclude at 6:30. We invite conference attendees to join us at La Nacional’s restaurant before the concert. The restaurant has generously offered a 10% discount to conference attendees, so save your program or ID tag to present. You can view their menu of traditional Spanish cuisine on their website

Last, but certainly not least, we hope that you will join us before the conference on October 12 for the launch party of K. Meira Goldberg’s new book and the genesis of this conference, Sonidos Negros: On the Blackness of Flamenco. The launch party will be held at the 92nd St. Y, as a part of their Fridays at Noon series. Tickets are $15.
