“Cogito” a concert to celebrate the 7th International Day of Dance
Founding Director, Dr. Seonagh Odiambo.
“As artists, we battle the confines of gender, as a scaffolding that predetermines everything from what we think and do, to sometimes even who we love. Resting on our shoulders is a daily pressure regarding how we are supposed to think, without consideration to how we feel or choose to represent our own identities. The existence of the mind does not depend on the body. Furthermore, the strength of the mind does not depend on the strength of the body. As artists, we have a responsibility to tear down cultural barriers. In every thought a reflection of our past, present, and future is embodied. Refusing our oppressors, we present seeds that unsex and liberate our gender roles. Cogito is a celebration of this blooming.”
– Artistic Director, Lizett Galan

I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed & necessary.
