Lecture/Demonstration & Movement Workshop | February 24, 2017

General admission with limited seating

Danza Orgánica, a Boston-based Contemporary Dance Theater Company directed by choreographer Marsha Parrilla, leads a Dance for Social Justice Movement Workshop for youth, teens, and adults of all experience levels, followed by a lecture/demonstration performance from her work Running in Stillness. Q&A with the audience will conclude the event.

Running in Stillness is a dance-theater project based on the impact of mass incarceration on women and their families. Through a close collaboration with formerly incarcerated women and daughters of incarcerated parents, Danza Orgánica created a project that sheds light on this often-ignored topic.
