Saul Villegas (DANM 2024) has been selected as a participant in EmergeNYC's 2023 Virtual Program Analog Bodies and Virtual Activations led by Nicolás Dumit Estévez & Marlène Ramírez-Cancio. The program takes the form of weekly online sessions where participants "are encouraged to investigate genders, sexualities, class, race, politics, and spiritualities from the interstitial space between the analog and the digital that this pandemic moment has intensified... Some of the formats we will use include performance, writing, dance/movement, deep listening, visualization, somatic practices, and conversations, plus visits by and presentations of the work of mainly BIPOC and gender non-conforming practitioners from the Americas and the Caribbean."
"EMERGENYC is an incubator and affinity network for socially engaged artists to develop their creative voice, explore the intersections of art and activism, and connect to a thriving community of BIPOC, migrant, and LGBTQIA+ practitioners who challenge dominant narratives through cultural resistance. First launched in 2008 at NYU’s Hemispheric Institute—and now housed at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange in partnership with Abrons Arts Center."
