Future Traditions is a multimedia festival that explores digital technology as a collaborative tool for extending and facilitating traditional Latin American music and dance in the 21st century. Traditional dance and music groups are invited to actively collaborate with multimedia artists to expand and re-imagine existing cultural practices while artists already working within these mediums present new works. The festival is a platform for creating new discourses around intersections between technology, experimentation, and tradition while working toward cultural equity.
The festival includes guest lectures, a roundtable discussion, performances, and a closing party.
Future Traditions brings together the following collaborative teams:
Brooklyn-based multimedia artist Efraín Rozas
UT Austin electro-acoustic composer José Martinez
Closing party with Chulita Vinyl Club ATX
