PERFORMANCE


"Layered, muscular, and surprising...her open, raw, emotional presence inside the movement is breathtaking...She offers a vivid and lively connection to Indigenous cultures within a contemporary lens."
- Marissa Wolf,
Director of NewWorks/Associate Artist

"Powerful, Illuminating, Emotionally Engaging" 
              - Jim Julien, Asheville FringeArts
               
"She danced with the splendor of an exotic butterfly.  Movements so deliberate 
in grace and in flight..."
- from a poem composed by audience member Josephine Acquirre 
in response to Maura Garcia's performance

"The premiere of "Yvwi Tsvsdi-The Little People"…strong, stunning performance.” 
- Tess Ocana, Concerts Director, ArtsCenter
