No More Beautiful Dances wrestles with the ideas of exploration, introspection, reframing a woman after becoming a mother, and being an immigrant. Anabella Lenzu’s dance theater piece uses spoken word and video projections to tell a personal vision of femininity and what it means to be a woman today.
