As a mentor in the current Mujer Artista project cycle, Alexandra will give a talk about her art practice rooted in dance and performance.

In this talk, she will discuss navigating times of transition, re-thinking/re-imagining where value and worth reside as a dance artist, person and mother. She will talk about creating work while riding imposter syndrome, flipping the narrative and reclaiming space for her creative voice.
