  • Description

    In the past year, Florida and its neighbors in the Gulf Coast and Caribbean have weathered hurricanes, earthquakes, and ice storms, all amidst a global pandemic. Artists have helped disaster-impacted communities come to terms with how to move forward, rebuild, and prepare for the next crisis. Join choreographer, Michelle Gibson (New Orleans/ Dallas), and members of the Y no había luz theatre collective, Yari Helfeld and Julio Morales (San Juan), on April 19th, 2021 from 7:30pm - 9:00pm EST as we investigate how artists’ tenacity reshape disastrous realities into artistic opportunity for healing, rebirth, and joy…

    This is the culminating event in a year-long series of engagements with these artists to explore questions of disaster and the body, curated by Colleen Rua, Asst. Professor of Theatre Studies and Rachel Carrico, Asst. Professor of Dance Studies.
