Description: 

Radical Acts of Love is a site-adaptive dance-theatre work conceived and directed by CatherineMarie Davalos. It is a call to action amid hatred and violence. The members of the Davalos Dance Company are interested in creating safe dancing spaces in which interactions for rehearsal and performance become a vehicle for dialogue and change. The dance is set to traditional Mexican music, poetry, spoken word, and original compositions with the common thematic material of love. Since the Davalos Dance Company (DDC) is an intersectional group of artists representing the Latina/o, Jewish, Black, and queer communities, their work questions heteronormativity and asks us to examine privilege, power dynamics and social constructs. We seek to partner with others as a catalyst for constructive social change.
