DiverseWorks presents Womb, a project of Body as a Crossroads
Womb, a project of Body as a Crossroads, is a brave and intimate new dance work spearheaded by Los Angeles-based dance-maker, Marina Magalhães. Womb lives in the sacred meeting space of dualities, wherein it is possible to conjure spirit through flesh, find joy in grief, and create ritual out of rupture.
The work was catalyzed by Magalhães’s personal experience of miscarriage mid-global pandemic and incorporates the storytelling of her fellow creators and dance-makers, Bianca Medina and Tatiana Zamir. Together, they bring to life a timely evening of live performance which care-fully contends with cycles of death and rebirth.
Womb is the first activation of Magalhães’s nationally award-winning project, Body as a Crossroads, which seeks to generate (re)membering practices of body, spirit, and land to mobilize the possibilities of dance-making as change-making.
