“Canción del Cuerpo” (Song of the Body)
“Canción del Cuerpo” is the culmination of more than two years of collaboration between the University of Texas and el Colegio del Cuerpo. Initiated with a lecture by Alvaro Restrepo at the Rapoport Center in 2008, the collaboration has grown into an ongoing project that has seen students and faculty from across the University of Texas community interact with members of el Colegio del Cuerpo, both in Austin and Cartagena, on topics ranging from dance and corporal education to human rights advocacy and law to photo-journalism and anthropology. This special program presented new works by several featured choreographers, performed by dance majors in the University’s Dance Repertory Theatre together with company members of El Colegio del Cuerpo, under the Artistic Direction of University of Texas Faculty Members Lyn C. Wiltshire and Yacov Sharir and guest choreographer Restrepo.
