And, as promised, more Noche Hispana info

Paulino  Brener, a teacher at the City of Lakes Waldorf School, a passionate artist, and frequent Patrick’s Cabaret guest-curator, has been doing theater and dance in the Twin Cities since 2001. This May 16 and 17 at 8 p.m., and May 17th at 2 p.m, he brings together talented local musicians, dancers, and poets to celebrate la cultura hispana. Nicolas Carter and his daughter Maliya Gorman-Carter  share folk music of Paraguay and Argentina, playing the harp, violin, and guitar. Dario Tangelson, an actor, director and teacher from Argentina, presents the mesmerizing “Dale que va,” in which a ghostly waiter character from a persistent past, stuck in time in a rundown bar from Buenos Aires, comments on life in general from the extreme gloomy logic of the tango spirit. Rebecca Mcdonals will present an original video based on a poem by local poet Teresa Ortiz. Jorge Gonzalez and Rachel Rogness, will perform guitar and violin pieces from Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Spain. Corazón Latino will present traditional dances from the Northwest region of Argentina, as well as a modern dance which they have choreographed themselves. The trio “Raices” will demonstrate their dedication to the music of Latin America. And last but not least, Wendy Everett and her dance partner will present some traditional Mexican dances.
