What makes a good mother? What makes a good artist?

“Listen to Your Mother” is a choreographic research project dedicated to the lives of women-identifying artists who are immigrant mothers living in New York City.

“Listen to Your Mother” seeks to capture these underrepresented women’s stories to inspire dialogue, appreciation, and social support instead of the ongoing prejudice endured that is historically placed against mothers and women in the arts.

Using my ongoing movement research and embodied practice exploring spoken word, movement, and media, this work will expose and capture the body histories of mothers who are immigrant artists grappling with the cultural differences of living in New York City.
