Presented by the Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana dance company, the program of Spanish dance and music features solos, duets and company dances and is meant to evoke a journey through the cultural crossroads of Andalusia, the southern region of Spain where the flamenco dance originated. Dance Magazine has called Carlota Santana, the company's artistic director, the “keeper of the flamenco.”

Western Carolina University's Department of Intercultural Affairs will host “The Vagina Monologues” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 10-11, in the A.K. Hinds University Center Grandroom.

“The Vagina Monologues” is a series of 18 monologues written by Eve Ensler with one straightforward message: to end violence against women and girls all over the world. Ensler, an activist, writer and performer, wrote the play in 1996 after she interviewed dozens of females with stories of violence against women and the struggles women face in society. Female students and staff of WCU stage the play annually in recognition of V-day, which is a global movement to bring awareness to people about female sexuality, relationship, and violence against women.
