Maria was born out of nostalgia for home. Memories, images of femininity, domestication, drama, and labor are transformed into a physicality that calls upon tradition and cultural background. Somewhere between identity and stereotype, this work lands in a Spanglish fight driven by objects, gestures and cumbia. Maria is inspired by and dedicated to the women of my family, especially mis abuelas.

DiffiDifferent is a conversation that began with watching The Matrix on mute a lot. In the work, three performers use their bodies and voices to examine theories surrounding Artificial Intelligence, “super intelligence,” and the potential for technology to enable the preservation of the mind, making the body obsolete. Fused with a deep love for science fiction and a nostalgia for early depictions of robotics and the internet, Lisa Fagan Dance Problems confronts these aesthetic tropes alongside anxieties concerning where humanity is heading, championed by technologic advancement.
cinder came about one Sunday after a boozy brunch with my mom and my Aunt Bola. With a residency from Dance Source Houston at The Barn in Texas, I began to mull over: Cleaning. Teaira Whitehead. Sandra Bland. Line dancing. Rope. Memory. Blue. Glitter. Howl. Up. Flight. Cleaning. I also fell in love and began casting spells.
