Fenomenal, Rompeforma 1989-1996, is a documentary about Rompeforma: Marató n de Baile, Performance & Visuales, the experimental Latinx dance and performance festival that took place in Puerto Rico from 1989-1996. Fenomenal, Rompeforma 1989-1996 features dozens of performances and commentary by many current leaders of the field, and some who have sadly passed. Fenomenal intends to inspire younger generations of Latinx artists and cultural activists by providing evidence of the rich creative and artistic contributions of Latinx to the American avant-garde. Fenomenal preserves, and makes available the repertoire of a generation of Latinx experimental dance, performance, and curation often overlooked and/or forgotten by historians, scholars, and practitioners in the field, to confront the elusive amnesia and appropriation by mainstream players, with respect to the(unexpected) work of Latinx experimental dance and performance artists.

This event is sponsored by the UCLA Program on Caribbean Studies and World Arts & Cultures/Dance. The screening will take place on Monday, January 29, 2024 from 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM Kaufman Hall, Rm. 200 and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, Merián Soto and Viveca Vasquez.
