︎︎︎ Bailar La Ciudad ︎︎︎︎︎︎︎︎︎
Bailar La Ciudad (To Dance the City) is a cultural project that explores the present, past, and future of local celebrations in the public space. It speculates how it might have helped define a communal identity and creates an opportunity for collective reflection.
Bailar La Ciudad is committed to exploring, mapping, and showing the island's public celebrations and how they entail a vehicle to reinforce diverse identities and social cohesion. The project consists of a series of talks, conversations, and events, along with a photography and video exhibition that will take place across February and March 2022. It will count on the participation of the wider public along with local choreographers, sociologists, anthropologists, DJs, historians, and urban designers, that will contribute to elaborate a critical approach on this issue.
Bailar La Ciudad is a selected project in the call for Cultural Projects of the CCA Gran Canaria - Cabildo de Gran Canaria.
