Maura Garcia
2017 Project-Based Artist in Residence

Dancer/choreographer Maura Garcia collaborates within communities to create stories of identity and place.  She is fascinated by stories that have been hidden and the unexpected connections that arise when they are rediscovered.  Originally from North Carolina, Maura is an Indigenous woman (Cherokee/ Mattamuskeet) who brings her own mixed-blood southern story to all of her work.  She has collaborated with a host of wonderfully talented artists to create multi-media, interactive shows and engage via  arts projects and experiential workshops involving everyone in the creative process.  Maura uses her art to form connections, to uplift Indigenous cultural values and to explore the rhythms of the natural world.  She is a guest artist on this year’s performance of Emergence.
