Danza Folklórica Escénica film screening with Olga Najera-Ramirez
As an anthropologist specializing in folklore, Olga Nájera-Ramírez has concentrated on documenting and critically examining expressive culture among Mexicans in both Mexico and the United States. She has conducted fieldwork in Texas, California, and Jalisco, Mexico, and has a special interest in dance and festival. With a focus on issues of identity formation, relationships of power, and expressive cultural forms, her work contributes to the interdisciplinary, transnational studies of culture.
Join Grupo Folklorico de UCLA and Olga Najera Ramirez for this public screening of Danza Folklórica Escénica:El Sello Artístico de Rafael Zamarripa (Mexican Folkloric Dance: Rafael Zamarripa’s Artistic Trademark), which tells the story of this vibrant art form through the life and work of the internationally acclaimed artist and choreographer, Rafael Zamarripa.
