SPECIAL EDITION #46 FOR THIS TIME OF COVID-19 PHYSICAL DISTANCING*

Dance for Social Justice, a Jacob’s Pillow virtual program, hosts a three-part workshop series Friday November 6, Tuesday Nov 10, and Saturday Nov 21.

 

Led by Mar Parrilla and Claudia Elena Varela, artists of Danza Orgánica, participants will engage in the practice of storytelling and community building through movement with a decolonizing and antiracist framework.
