I hope that this message finds you all well and in good spirits in spite of the cold weather. Things have been progressing very nicely here in Kansas City and the move has definitely been a blessing. The past few performances went wonderfully well and we now find ourselves in December with good news concerning upcoming events.
Over the past few months I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with lighting designer Ray Robins, videographer Lisa Marie Evans (another UCP studio residency program participant) and visual artist Soumitra Dasgupta on The Little People. A recording of our collaboration will be shown as part of the Paragraph Gallery’s ( 23 East 12th Street, KCMO 64105, 816-221-5115 ) January/February show beginning on the 15th of January , 2010.
In addition to being selected to participate in the above show, MIXED BLOOD WOMAN has been invited to perform at “A Modern Night at the Folly 2010” on February 6, 2010 at the historic Folly Theater, 300 West 12th Street, KCMO 64105-1668, (816) 474-4444.
Lastly, MIXED BLOOD WOMAN will be beginning a new MARIPOSA Empowerment workshop utilizing the choreographic work ACT III as a vehicle of healing. ACT III deals with the stigma attached to survivors of rape. I will be teaching this piece to a group of women and invite anyone interested in participating to contact me directly.
We hope that you all will be able to come out to some of our “goings on” and we look forward to seeing you again.
Take good care and be well,
Maura Michelle Garcia
