Fenestella is a window into the work and collaborations of Sarah Holmes Villanueva Dance, Ajayi Dance, and Elizabeth Pollert. The collective evening of performance will be one of introspection, experimentation, wonder, and powerful kinesthetic expression, as we delve into questions of identity, societal expectations, and futuristic imagination.
