DíaPaSon, 2018 NALAC Fund for the Arts Grantee

DiaPaSon (Maria De La Rosa)

  • Presenting & Multidisciplinary Works
  • Oakland, CA

To support LAS PETENERAS, a haunting call from the Sirens to explore ancient voices, evoke our primal reaction to deep song and melodic harmonies and question our inherent understanding of the female presence through the exploration of female archetypes in Mexican folklore. Artistic director María de la Rosa, music director Patricio Hidalgo and a cast composed primarily of Bay Area female artists, sponsor community fandangos, present workshops and a panel discussion leading up to a full-length concert, LAS PETENERAS. NFA funds would be earmarked for artist fees (including invited community artists) and documentation of the project.
