Once upon a time… 7 months ago, Marion Ramirez (MFA Dance), Tim Gibbon (Med Art Education), and Desiree Bender (Med Art Education) met Willes “Spanish Flash” Torres at a boxing gym at 5th and Venango. Over the last seven months, we danced, we boxed and we shared stories. The visual installation, narrative and movements created for this performance are in response to our transformation into, Marion “Alas de Fuego”, Tim “Machito”, and Desiree “the Thunder”.
