Dominique NigroDominique Nigro, a graduate of the SF State school of Music and Dance has trained/ performed in a multitude of theater/dance styles. She has been an active member of the Bay Area performance/dance community for the past 11. She currently dances/collaborates with Oakland based Piñata Dance Collective, under the direction of Liz Boubion, and the dance/theater/improv project Dynamism Movement(of which she is a founding member along with Benni Baker). As a highly sensitive individual, her improvised performance technique seeks to navigate/explore space between honest and performative emotional states.
This is the first time her personal practice will be made public, an improvised meditation on tough tenderness, a rage against learned self-censorship, and a study on how to feast on the scraps of life.
