Art & Spirit - Danza Organica Residency Begins

Date: 
February 3, 2019 - 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Marsha Parrilla and Danza Orgánica

Danza Orgánica is a process and performance-based company that unfolds societal issues through intensive research and collaboration, and embodies these findings to create challenging and honest dance theatre.

Danza Orgánica reaches within the ordinary and extraordinary movements of the body- to produce complex, refreshing, and engaging dance-theater performances. We transcend disciplines, combining different art forms, while still retaining a primacy for dance and movement.

Award-winning choreographer Marsha Parrilla is the founding Artistic Director of Danza Orgánica. She was born and raised in San Juan- Puerto Rico (Boriken), and is of Taíno and Afro-Caribbean origins. Marsha relocated to NYC where she pursued a Master's degree in Dance Education from New York University. Parrilla is a proud recipient of several grants from the New England Foundation for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Boston Foundation- among others. She is currently a resident artist in the city of Boston, through their unique Boston AIR (Artist in Residence) program. Parrilla is also a Luminary artist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where she is now a commissioned artist. Most recently, Parrilla was awarded a Creative Development Residency at Jacob's Pillow, and was recently featured at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Inside/Out Festival. Parrilla is the founding producer of the acclaimed annual festival: We Create! Celebrating Women in the Arts.
