Hand2Mouth Presents DISTANCIAS

Hand2Mouth presents in collaboration with moriviví, Distancias.

During the Covid Pandemic we find ourselves longing for human connections. Distancias is a collection of different works based on our experiences during this time. Though much of our world has stopped, we have continued to experience so much. We are all adapting, growing, coping, letting go, and most importantly, changing with the times.

Influenced by this, and using different styles and mediums, Geo Alva, Robi Arce, and Michael Cavazos, explore the distances between each other and the ways we have learned to engage in the world we are in.

Streaming April 2 & 3 @ 7:30pm online with facilitated talkback. Available on demand starting April 5. Tickets:
