Thursday, 31 March – Saturday 2 April 2011, Kings Place, York Way, London N1 9AG

Curator Patricia Bossio’s exploration of the processes of identity building, for individuals and for the cities of Buenos Aires, London and Rio de Janeiro has led to a collaboration between Patricia and a number of high profile British, Argentinean and Brazilian musicians, dancers, designers and film-makers to create Transtango: Urban Encounters.  These series of events entitled Dreaming Cities will include performances and discussions which show how international urban influences can be interwoven as cultures meld together in today’s great cities.

The talks will be led by academics invited by Birkbeck’s Centre for Iberian and Latin American Visual Studies, in discussion with the Transtango artists, bringing together the academic and artistic strands of the project.
