María Moliner Tendiendo Palabras poster

7 pm

Born in Zaragoza, Spain in 1900, María Moliner is known for her great work, the Diccionario de Uso del Español. A librarian and lexicographer, she began compiling the dictionary in 1952, working on it in the morning and evening before and after her regular hours of employment. Moliner’s approach was to look up words, read newspapers, and note words that she had heard in the street, in an effort to create a resource that would be more comprehensive than the dictionary published by the Real Academia Española. To this end, her dictionary, first published in 1966-1967 and republished twice since, contained detailed definitions, synonyms, expressions, and families of words. The film follows the important events in Moliner’s life, highlighting the terms that define them and using the definitions that she herself offers in her work. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2017; Vicky Calavia; Spanish with English subtitles; 70 minutes; rated PG.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

Abrepaso Flamenco & Alice Blumenfeld: Vacío/Void

March 3March 4

8 pm Saturday,
2 pm Saturday & Sunday

Abrepaso seeks to create honest flamenco dance that provokes the audience to think, feel, question, and remember our shared humanity. The name Abrepaso comes from the Spanish phrase “abrir paso,” which can signify making or paving the way and breaking open space. The company aims to establish a contemporary approach to flamenco in the United States, breaking down boundaries and stereotypes through professional, quality performances and education. This flamenco performance explores the voids that thwart us from seeing our own interconnectedness to others and nature. Using environmentalist Rachel Carson’s work as a starting point, the flamenco movements and new music develop a dynamic approach to the figurative and literal voids we experience in our lives. Featuring Alice Blumenfeld, composer Lauren Valerie Coons, guitarist Misael Barraza, and singer Meagan Chandler.
$28, $34 w/ a $2 discount for NHCC members
