Narixa – Short Film by The Emigrated Movement

Narixa is a short dance film based on the beautiful natural element of water. Shot in the ‘Río Chillar’, Nerja it explores the waters journey from spring to sea.

Stereotypes About Dancers’ Bodies

I have been involved in dance, movement, and therapy for many years and since the beginning I have moved with people of all ages and shapes and abilities. It is rare that I move/dance with what many people think of as a “typical dancer”. One of the most amazing dance experiences I ever had was in Philadelphia co-creating choreography with a group of kids, adults, and elders.
