The Performance

About the Director

A site specific happening created by Robert Castro, Patricia Rincon, Yolande Snaith, and Natalia Valerdi. With the overwhelming success of the UC San Diego Arts In Action Festival 2010, we are inspired to continue the efforts of art as social and moral action towards transformation, progress, and communication. This project has been funded in part by the UC San Diego Arts and Humanities Initiative Committee.


Patricia Rincon (Director) has performed, directed and choreographed in California, Mexico and Europe, as well as participated as an artist-in-residence at the University of Heidelberg Sports Institute, University of Frankfurt Main, University of Manheim and in Konstanz, Germany. She has taught at the Universities of Zurich, Bern and Lugano in Switzerland, and most recently with the students of the IUNA Instituto Universitario Nacional de Arte in Buenos Aries, Argentina. She is the Artistic Director of the Patricia Rincon Dance Collective since 1982. Ms. Rincon has developed the successful annual Blurred Borders Dance Festival as well as the site-specific Myth Project series in San Diego. Ms. Rincon has continued to work with partner, Paula Zacharias, in creating numerous dance video/film projects. She was awarded a UC San Diego Latino Studies Research Initiative grant in 2008-2009 for the research and making of their new documentary: Latino Now-Landscape of Desire, filmed in Mexico and California about the American Dream. Patricia has just been invited to present her work Peeled and teach at the IUNA Instituto Universitario Nacional de Arte in Buenos Aires, Argentina in September 2011. Patricia is Head of Dance in the UC San Diego Department of Theatre and Dance.
