EAST BAY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS CELEBRATES THE INSPRING WORK OF RICHMOND NATIVE AND FACULTY MEMBER, DOLORES “LOLIS” GARCÍA.

Dolores “Lolis” García is the Assistant Director for the East Bay Center’s resident arts company, Son de la Tierra.  A resident of Richmond since childhood, Ms. García received her BA in Psychology from the University of San Francisco.  A talented musician and dancer, Ms. García has mastered several string and percussion instruments associated with the son of Mexico, and traveled in Mexico to work with Huastecan and Jarocho musicians. She has been with the Center for 19 years, studying and teaching Mexican music and dance, hip-hop, modern dance and West African dance, both at the main site and afterschool programs.

In 2002, she performed in the California Encuentro del Son.  This month-long celebration of son culminated in an international tour and a performance at Zellerbach Hall, as part of Cal Performances World Stage Series.  In 2004, Ms. Garcia received an Alliance of California Traditional Arts grant for an intensive master-apprentice program where she studied with Artemio Posadas.  She was a featured dancer in the Mexican Heritage Corporation’s 2006 production of “Diaspora Negra” and La Peña’s 2007 production of “Son de Poesía”.   In both 2005 and 2009, Ms. Garcia participated as a musician and dancer in the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival.  In 2009, Ms. Garcia participated in EBCPA’s joint production, Yanga, with the Oakland Museum of Art.  The program was an exploration of the crossroads of Mexican and African traditional music.
