PODCAST BY SILVA LAUKKANEN
In this episode of DanceCast, Silva interviews Violeta Fatás, a dancer in Spain devoted to expanding integrative dance. Violeta shares her perspective on the integrative dance scene in Spain, how she became interested in access and disability, why dance – especially improvisation – is particularly suited for augmenting accessibility, and her work making dance performances accessible to sight-impaired audience members.
Violeta Fatás has trained in contemporary dance, dance theater and contact improvisation. She holds an MA in dance and in accessibility. She has worked extensively with people who have visual and auditory disabilities. Since 2014, she has co-run Pares Sueltos, a performing arts group that works to promote access for people with and without disabilities.
