“I like to think of dance class as a chance to grow a new body. I am in a process of developing the language that gives me access to a more sensual, animal, connected, bloody, fleshy, fatty, bony, magical, deeper than even the marrow of the bone, vibrational body; and I’d like to share it with you. Using a lot our imagination, using our breath and our voice, using touch and also sometimes discussing and learning tools for strengthening connections and for letting go of patterns of use of ourselves. Always moving towards pleasure…”
—luciana achugar

Presented by Show Box L.A. in conjunction with performances of PURO DESEO, by luciana chugger at Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles, March 30–31, 2013.
