Boston Dancemakers Residency Showcase

Laura Sanchez / LS Flamenco 

AFTER DARK is a multimodal production that combines flamenco with contemporary dance, poetry, spoken word, visual and creative expression to create awareness about motherhood and mental health during Covid-19. 

Showcased in the Mills Gallery at BCA, this ongoing experimental sharing will weave together the chapters of this long-term project. Featuring award-winning film AFTER DARK based on Laura’s experiences as an artist, woman, trauma survivor, and mother of her first child, who found hope in the arts during pandemic quarantine. Then premiering the newest chapter focused on the lights and shadows of motherhood, while sharing glimpses into Laura’s experience becoming a mother to her second child, who suffered a severe brain injury at birth. 

While we all may be experiencing similar trauma, it is affecting each of us differently in unimaginable ways, and this production aims to provide a healing opportunity for the Boston Community. Throughout this immersive work, audience members are invited to connect within a chorus of motherhood sparking a sense of support, embrace, and empowerment.
