Liz Boubion & Piñata Dance Collective
Sunday, May 4th at 4pm
Tickets $5-50 sliding scale

Come celebrate Liz Boubion's upcoming residency in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico!!! Liz's application was one of 4 accepted out of 160 international applicants to "Xochi Quetzal" and she needs support getting there.

Shawl-Anderson will be hosting her interdisciplinary group, the Piñata DanceCollective in this informal showing and fundraiser before she embarks on her journey to the land of her ancestors. Audiences will be invited to participate in a blindfolded exploration of the senses and invited to view excerpts of Piñata dances and improvisational scores based on a new interpretation of the Piñata ritual. Her work confronts external appearances, the impermanent nature of the body and offers an educational context of the history of La Piñata.

Live Music and Dance Performed by: Liz Boubion, Jeanette Male, Dominique Nigro, Sophie Stanley, Cuauhtemoc Peranda, Katherine He, Bricine Mitchelle, Afia Walking Tree, Evelie Delfino Sales Posch, Rebecca Sanchez.
