About We Create:
Danza Orgánica, a Boston-based dance theater company, spearheaded by the award-winning Puerto Rican choreographer Mar Parrilla, will be presenting their annual festival: We Create! on June 4-5- virtually. Now in its 8th year, We Create has become a favorite tradition in the Boston arts scene. Renowned and upcoming artists from Massachusetts, and beyond share an unparalleled feast of music, dance, film, spoken word, theater, and mixed media arts. Founded in 2014, We Create is a process-oriented arts festival that gives self-identified women and gender non-conforming artists the opportunity to create original work around an annual theme supported by a community of artists. Each year, a cohort of artists are selected from an open call for proposals. This group meets twice during that period to share and discuss their process; the final work is presented at the We Create festival. This year’s artist cohort will be creating work around the theme: Embodying Liberation.
