News: Annabella Lenzu's Solo Show "Listen to Your Mother" Opens May 16th at La MaMa

Anabella Lenzu, choreographer, scholar, educator, and author of Unveiling Motion and Emotion/ Revelando Movimiento y Emoción (2013), has spent the last two years engaged in research for her new solo show "Listen to Your Mother," which will make its world premiere from May 16th-19th, 2024 at La MaMa Moves (66 East 4th Street).

What makes a good mother? What makes a good artist?

"Listen to Your Mother" is a choreographic research project dedicated to the lives of women-identifying artists who are immigrant mothers living in New York City. The show seeks to capture these underrepresented women's stories in order to inspire dialogue, appreciation, and social support instead of the ongoing prejudice that is historically endured by mothers and women in the arts. Using Lenzu's ongoing movement research and embodied practice exploring spoken word, movement, and media, this work will expose and capture the body histories of mothers who are immigrant artists grappling with the cultural differences of living in New York City.

The performance schedule is as follows:

May 16 – 19, 2024

Thursday at 7PM
Friday at 7PM
Saturday at 7PM
Sunday at 4PM


Adults: $30
Students/Seniors: $25
First 10 tickets are $10 (limit 2 per person)

Ticket prices are inclusive of all fees and may be purchased here.

"Listen to Your Mother" was developed in part during the 2022 Parent Artist in Residency at Movement Research and Artist-in-Residency at Carroll Hall, Brooklyn, as well with grants from The Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant, The Vermont Community Foundation and The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
