The Maiden with the Midas Touch
The title, Doña, is the feminine title reserved for royalty in the Iberian and Italian lands of which she is native. Her fierce Latin heart (“cuori”) exudes a passion for life that stirs the soul awake.
From tributes to Amelia Earhart and Rosa Parks, to Medusa, Catherine the Great, Ida Cox, and Violet Mcneal, she explores the many dimensions of power and primacy in her performances. Drawing from her work in social justice, leadership development and depth psychology, she integrates and embodies intellectually, politically, spiritually and emotionally charged content into her works.
