DANCE PERFORMANCE ‘I STILL SEE SHADOWS’ choreographer, EMILY MOOTZ
Dancers: Molly Buzanis • Andrio Jordan Fong • Emily Mootz
“I Still See Shadows” focuses on the complexities of understanding and accepting the trauma we hold within our bodies, and explores the ways in which these traumas can isolate us from the support we often need. This work dives into the stages of grieving and healing that occurs when the body has faced trauma, and highlights the process of overcoming these obstacles.
