Negotiations says
Using body, voice and narrative, Carly Bates, Allyson Yoder and Raji Ganesan wrestle with questions of identity, heritage and belonging in "Negotiations." With the audience, they resist, remember and reconstruct what it means to occupy their bodies.

This piece is presented in conjunction with "Energy Charge: Connecting to Ana Mendieta," an exhibition on view at the ASU Art Museum Sept. 24–Dec. 31.
