“Awakenings proposes such a beautiful way to imagine the future; through the lens of love. I am excited to activate one of the History Museums with the life and energy of dancing bodies. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the team of mentors and really uncover the stories that are buried and waiting to come alive and be reimagined to be relevant and urgent today.”
