Live Stage: Nancy Garcia [us Miami]

Nancy Garcia :: April 9 – June 9, 2011 :: Opening: April 9; 7:00 – 10:00 pm :: Bas Fisher Invitational, 180 NE 39th Street, Suite 210, Miami, Florida.

Nancy Garcia’s interdisciplinary practice incorporates choreography, music/sound, video, performance, image making, and new media.
