Description

Martha's Artist Salon | Moving Bodies, Shifting Boundaries: Process, Performance and Identity
February 4 | 10:30 am–12 pm | Free Public Program
Calderwood Pavilion at Boston Center for the Arts

As our society comes to new understandings and articulations of gender identity and sexuality, what is required to stand in our truth? Through a dancemaking process that connects us across age, difference, and distance—how can we remain nimble to those articulations? Join Marsha Parrilla, Director of Danza Orgánica, and Matthew Cumbie, an Associate Artistic Director of Dance Exchange, to explore identities, herstories and histories, especially as they relate to gender identity and sexuality. This participatory discussion and workshop will share creative practices and connect participants to local and national conversations to better understand the historical and contemporary contexts of queer and women-centered community building.

This Martha’s Artist Salon will be followed by an afternoon workshop, led by Marsha and Matthew that will dig deeper into topics touched upon in the talk:

12:00 to 1:30 | Workshop 1, led by Marsha Parrilla, Danza Orgánica
1:30 to 2:30 | Lunch break
2:30 to 4:00 | Workshop 2, led by Matthew Cumbie, Dance Exchange
