Primera Generación Dance Collective: is a collaborative group based in Riverside, California and formed by Alfonso Cervera, Rosa Rodriguez-Frazier, Irvin Gonzalez and Patty Huerta that focuses on the visibilization of Mexican American corporeality through movement-based exploration, process and performance. Educated and trained through graduate studies at the University of California Riverside, the collective finds its roots in experimental choreography and research that focuses on Mexican American identity and its many marginalized connections. Utilizing a pastiche quality of text, satire, song and movement (comprised of improvisation, postmodern, contemporary and Mexican social/folk forms) the collective fuses together their eclectic aesthetics to expose el desmadre, or messiness, that is their first generation, Mexican American experience. Primera Generación has recently performed at (San Francisco) FLACC Festival, (Los Angeles) REDCAT Theatre, HomeLA, Bootleg Theatre, CMDC’s 3rd Anniversary Showcase at Brocckus Space, (Santa Monica) BEHOLD Queer Fest at Highways Performance Space, and (Berkeley) Berkeley Art Museum and has recently curated their first show titled (de) Color-Es. www.facebook.com/primerageneraciondance

Cambio is an experimental contemporary dance that visibilizes the underrepresented communities that the four artists stem from. Recently debuted at the FLACC Festival in San Francisco, CMDC in Los Angeles, and at REDCAT Theatre in Los Angeles,  as part of their seasonal studio series. This movement-based performance utilizes text, satire, song and improvisation to display the flux that is Mexican American identity, reveling in the desmadre (the messiness) dealt by four first generation individuals.

Ni Fu, Ni Fa is an experimental contemporary dance that visibilizes the underrepresented communities that the four artists stem from. Recently debuted at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, California as part of their BEHOLD Queer Fest series in the month of May, this movement-based performance is a series of non-sequitur vignettes that utilizes iconic images, sounds, props and food that reflect, and sometimes generate, the flux that is Mexican American identity, reveling in the desmadre (the messiness)

(de) Color-Es is an event that seeks to cultivate community amongst artists of color of first (and second) generational experience in the United States through the coalition of art. Beyond the artist, (de) Color-Es is designed to revel within el desmadre (messiness) that is being an artist of color new to this country, to spaces, and to each other, thus pushing towards a centering of who we are within environments void of us. This overall vision is produced by Primera Generación Dance Collective and their goal to promulgate a community held between the experience of marginalization that seeks visibility and mobility; sociality that includes where they come from, where they are, and where they are going.
(de) Color-Es literally translates to "of color is", and moves towards the celebration of first generational bodies of color interested in who they are, what our community can be, and what this all is/es. This evening will feature artists: Pavel Acevedo, Jobel Medina & Joey Navarrete, Nhu Nguyen, Yanina Orellana, Myrrhia Rodriguez, Crystal Sepúlveda, and Primera Generación Dance Collective. Audiences will be encouraged to navigate the multifaceted space at Human Resources as performances and durational art exhibits take place. The evening is comprised of two iterations, one at 6:00pm and another at 8:30pm.
