Work on the border: BNAR

I was invited to work as the local (AZ-based) choreographer to assist with the Binational Arts Residency (BNAR) featuring Ana María Álvarez (co-founder CONTRA-TIEMPO). In the weeks leading up to Ana María arriving in Arizona, I drove down to Douglas, AZ/Agua Prieta, SON to co-facilitate three dance and theater workshops with Xanthia Angel Walker, Matthew Mendez, Paula Ortega of Rising Youth Theater based in Phoenix, Bibi Harris and Alan Rubio of BB Danceur Academy based in Douglas, Juan Luis Angeles Gonzalez of Ballet de Agua Prieta and Gerardo Villalobos Garcia of Casa de la Cultura Agua Prieta Sonora both based in Agua Prieta, and M. Jenea Sánchez of Border Arts Corridor. After a dress

MPA Project interview with Ana María Álvarez

Today, wearing my Motherhood and the Performing Arts (MPA) Project hat, I had the exciting opportunity to partner with Chicana Motherwork and the 2018 Arizona Binational Artist in Residency to interview artist mother, artistic director, and choreographer Ana Maria Alvarez of CONTRA-TIEMPO. We discussed mothering, creating dance, and joy as a radical practice. Check out the interview below. Thank you Chicana Motherwork for partnering with us!
