Description

Broken Tailbone

Created and Performed by Carmen Aguirre

Produced by Nightswimming

March 11-14, 2020

In Broken Tailbone, celebrated writer and performer Carmen Aguirre leads a public Latin American dance lesson, woven with hilarious stories of her experiences in the hidden world of dance halls in Canada. DJ Don Pedro creates an irresistible musical environment to get even the most reluctant dancer up on her feet! Daring, sexy, and, above all, fun,

Carmen’s performance consists of an extended salsa dance lesson that flows into her remarkable stories of intimacy, politics, culture and the forgotten origins of the salsa. Everyone in the audience dances as the evening swiftly transforms into one of the dance halls Carmen vividly describes (in English and/or Spanish), bringing us deeply into one of Canada's most unique milieus...the Latinx dance halls that many people have never heard of.

"Carmen Aguirre’s kinetic Broken Tailbone is part salsa lesson, part political and personal memoir – and all sweaty fun.” (The Globe and Mail)
