Curator of Performance Elizabeth Doud interviews actor Gabino Rodriguez. Co-founder of theater company Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol, Rodriguez discusses the company's new work "Tijuana" featured in The Ringling's 2019-2020 Art of Performance series.
Curators and staff couldn't help but notice that performance, programs, and visual arts are organically centering around womanhood this spring at The Ringling, with the opening of "Natasha Mazurka: Order Systems" and the premiere of "girlwoman" by Moving Ethos Dance Company.
Did you see the Academy Award-winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire”? If so, you probably remember the closing scene, when the entire cast meets on a train platform and dances to the featured song, Jai Ho! Maybe you even got up and joined in on the festivities before the credits began to roll. Although made by a British director, this romantic drama was influenced by India’s Bollywood films and included several well-known Bollywood actors in the cast.
