Boro-Linc Staten Island: La Casita


Curator: Claudia Norman


Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden
Staten Island, NY


Saturday, September 10, 2016 - 1:00pm



Curator: Claudia Norman

Hosted by poet LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs

1:00 pm Balkan music by Vlada Tomova

2:00 pm Mexican Fandango dance workshop and performance by Jarana Beat


An impressive lineup of artist-activists convene to explore the far-reaching social, political, and expressive powers of oral and visual tradition. Here, wordsmiths share the stage with musicians and dancers to uncover how poetry, song, movement, and storytelling can unleash personal truths, construct identity, and fundamentally alter historic narratives.

Boro-Linc is bringing La Casita to Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn, and Lower Manhattan in a four-week series offering urban poetry, spoken word, and music and dance expressions. The La Casita series presents diverse artistic works representing traditions from Harlem, the South Bronx, Latin America, the African Diaspora, the Balkans, South Asia, and beyond. Each event features an interactive dance workshop complementing the day’s performances. 

This performance will be at the South Meadow Stage.


Boro-Linc: La Casita is curated by Claudia Norman.
