PUERTO RICAN FOLKLORIC DANCE & CULTURAL CENTER Closed
Call for Auditions - Spring 2011
*******************************************************
- Join our Company - http://www.prfdance.org/auditions.htm

Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance is a multi-generational performing company bonded
together like a family. We are holding auditions during the month of January for
Dancers and Musicians for our Adult and Junior Companies, to share the joy and
liveliness of the Puerto Rican people, and the color and richness of our beautiful
heritage throughout the year.

Professional-Level Company - Dance & Music Auditions

DANCERS & ACTORS:
Are you passionate about dancing and/or acting? We are looking for entry-level
adults, males and females, with outstanding, raw-dance talent, vibrant stage
presence, and natural acting-ability who wish to be trained for company membership.
Previous knowledge of a latin/folkloric dance style and formal acting skills
helpful but not required. If you like to dance and sing and act, all at the same
time, you will especially enjoy our live music and dance performances that tell
stories based in our cultural heritage. Specifically we are looking for:

   * strong, latin dance talent and dynamic stage presence
   * natural acting skills
   * high level of energy and joyful enthusiasm
   * ability to recreate the essence of our distinct traditional dance styles
   * quick learners with good memory for complex material
   * serious commitment to attend regular classes and rehearsals
   * team spirit


MUSICIANS:
Do you enjoy music that represents the soul of a people? Puerto Rican music is
diverse, featuring a wide variety of singing-styles and instruments including
acoustic guitars, cuatro and accordion players, large and small percussion,
strings, horns, winds, and more! We are auditioning advanced and professional-level
musicians, who have a talent for playing music by ear, and enjoy challenging
themselves as artists and developing new skills. If you play multiple instruments
you will have added fun!


YOUTH PERFORMING COMPANY (Dance & Music)
PRFDance's Youth Company is the training ground for our adult professional-level
performing company of dancers and musicians.

DANCERS:
PRFDance is holding auditions for advanced youth dancers interested in being
trained to perform with our Youth Performing Company. This fast-paced dance program
is targeted for advanced youth who are ready to mature their dance-skills towards a
level expected of our Professional Company, and gain exciting performance
experience beyond an annual recital. Natural acting ability a plus!

MUSIC:
If your child plays an instrument very advanced for his/her years, this program
gives unique opportunity to learn traditional Puerto Rican compositions and perform
with our company musicians. As segments of Puerto Rico's traditional music are not
in written form, this program will develop his/her talent for playing music by ear.


Call or email us for more information or an appointment!

Simposio: Quinto Centenario de la Rebelión Taína en Puerto Rico
(1511-2011)
Closed

Time Friday, February 18 at 7:30pm - February 19 at 5:00pm
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Location Aula Magna, Centro de Estudios Avanzados de Puerto Rico y el Caribe
Calle Cristo 52, Viejo San Juan
San Juan, Puerto Rico
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Created By Centro De Estudios Avanzados
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More Info La Fundación Cultural Educativa (FCE), en colaboración con el Centro de Estudios Avanzados de Puerto Rico y el Caribe (CEAPRC), presentará el simposio Quinto Centenario de la Rebelión Taína en Puerto Rico (1511-2011). Este memorable evento se llevará a cabo en el Aula Magna del CEAPRC, el 18 y 19 de febrero de 2011.

El propósito fundamental de este simposio es conmemorar los cinco siglos de la rebelión taína en Puerto Rico por m...edio de una serie de conferencias. Se enfocará el tema desde una perspectiva de su valor histórico, social, económico y religioso. Este significativo hecho histórico fue el resultado del choque de dos mundos, de la explotación del indígena por la encomienda y la economía minera del conquistador. A la vez, el alzamiento indígena tuvo como consecuencia la rebelión de los dominicos con el sermón de fray Antón de Montesinos en Santo Domingo a finales de ese año, todo lo cual produjo una alegada revisión del sistema de la encomienda. Por todo ello, la trascendencia de la rebelión taína es una fecha histórica que no debe olvidarse.

El viernes 18 a las 7:30 p.m. será la noche inaugural-coctel con una conferencia magistral "La rebelión taína de 1511: Una visión retrospectiva”
por el Dr. Luis González Vales, Presidente de la Academia Puertorriqueña de la Historia y Presidente de la Junta de Síndicos del CEAPRC, y la conferncia "La rebelión taína: Crónicas de una guerra negada" por el Arqlo. Miguel Riodríguez López, rector del Centro de Estudios Avanzados de Puerto Rico y el Caribe.Para la ocasión la Sociedad Numismática pondrá en circulación una moneda alusiva a la rebelión taína.

El sábado 19, desde la 8:30 a.m. y durante todo el día, se presentarán una serie de interesantes ponencias* alusivas al tema.

Dr. Sebastián Robiou Lamarche, “Teodoro De Bry: La imagen gráfica del taíno y la crítica a la conquista española”
Dr. Jalil Sued Badillo, “Caciques y cacicas: Los azares de la investigación etnohistórica”
Marimar Benítez, “Afirmación - Negación, el dulce encanto de la herencia indígena”
Dr. Francisco Moscoso, “Las Leyes de Burgos de 1512-13, entre la rebelión taína y la colonización española”
Sra. Tina Casanova, “El tema indígena en la literatura puertorriqueña”
Dr. Luis N. Rivera Pagán, “Las Capitulaciones de Burgos, los inicios del episcopado caribeño, la voz profética y la tragedia indígena”
Dr. Juan Manuel Delgado, “Cinco siglos de resistencia e identidad boricua”
Dr. Osvaldo García Goyco, “El yacimiento Jácana, su probable contemporaneidad con la rebelión taína de 1511”

*Sujeto a cambios.

More Info El Conservatorio de Arte Dramático Del Ateneo Puertorriqueño Como parte de su Segunda Muestra De Joven Dramaturgos presenta la obra de Teatro: Agüeybaná El Bravo

Ubicada en el contexto del comienzo de la colonización de Puerto Rico y el levantamiento indígena de 1511, la obra de teatro Agüeybaná El Bravo presenta el conflicto entre el cacique Agüeybaná El Viejo, quien auspicia la convivencia con los recién llegados invasores españoles y el hombre a quien la historia conocería como Agüeybaná El Bravo quien auspicia la toma de armas y la defensa de la patria ante los abusos de estos.
La pieza conmemora el V Centenario de este levantamiento que marca el inicio de una larga historia de resistencia puertorriqueña en contra de la opresión y la tiranía de los poderes mundiales que han llegado a nuestras costas buscando someternos a sus designios y su poderío.
Es además la primera obra de larga duración escrita por el Dramaturgo Puertorriqueño Ricardo Magriñá Vélez cuyo proyecto es parte de la Carrera de Dramaturgia que ejerce en el Ateneo Puertorriqueño.
El elenco de la misma está compuesto por Rolo Reyes como Agüeybaná El Bravo, Zulaika Ginés, Nelson Alvarado, Israel Solla, Antonio Rivera Malavé, Carlos Piñero, Emilio Graciano, Andrés López Sierra y Luis Javier Lopez, quien en es también el director de la pieza, como Agüeybaná el Viejo.
