Masterclass: Mariana Valencia
See Hear Here explores choreographic sensibilities. Our time together explores improvised movement through scores; brief writing exercises zoom us away from our introspective lenses. We will converse about our sightings and engage in a deeper collective understanding through listening, reaching toward each other with truth and care.
