Award-winning dance theater choreographer Constanza Macras discusses her background in documentary, community, and biography-driven performance work. Her lecture is part of the MIT Performing series, curated by Professor Jay Scheib, Music and Theater Arts.
Through a highly collaborative creative process, Macras’s work foregrounds the voices and experiences of the community members who contribute to the project as co-creators and performers. Themes in her previous community-based performances include urban planning, globalization, migration, and xenophobia in communities in South Africa and Germany.
