First Movements - Dance Performance

Posted 16/06/02 in EVENTS

Join us June 25, 2016 @8PM for First Movements - Dance Performance!

The Woodland Cultural Centre is pleased to present for the first time Maura Garcia in a spectacular dance performance as part of "First Movements". This performance is presented as a part of Woodland's -Tehonkieron:nions (They are Entertaining) series. A performing arts series funded by the generous support of the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Ontario Arts Council. 

Maura Garcia is a dancer/choreographer who collaborates within communities to create stories of identity and place. Originally from North Carolina, Maura is an Indigenous woman (Cherokee/ Mattamuskeet) who brings her own mixed-blood southern story to all of her work. Concerns about the perpetuation of Cherokee life-ways, the environment and social justice underlie her creations. She uses her art to empower, to form connections, to uplift Indigenous cultural values and to explore the rhythms of the natural world.

Advance tickets will be $10.00* and are available at the Woodland Cultural Centre  or by Paypal.  Regular Tickets will be available for $15.00 at the door the night of the performance.
