Inner Galactic is an immersive dance performance incorporating, music, spoken word, and theater as well as video, costume, light and visual design. This adventurous show uses outer space as a metaphor for the vast and complex inner workings of the heart. Inspired by space travel, the writing of Carl Sagan, the life cycle of stars and a general love of sci-fi/fantasy story-telling, Inner Galactic is a wild ride through joy, humor and heartbreak, exploring how we are truly "made of star stuff".

Proudly based in Seattle, WA, Maya Soto (Dancer/Choreographer) + Nico Tower (Musician/Multidisciplinary Artist) have partnered to create a new, exciting dance centered show. Inner Galactic is their first endeavor as a creative team. For more than a decade, Maya and Nico have maintained successful careers in dance and music. Maya as a performer, teaching artist, award winning arts educator, and choreographer. Nico as a passionate music educator, visual designer, arts outreach advocate, and touring composer/performer.

The creation of Inner Galactic has been made possible through Velocity Dance Center’s Creative Resident Program, in special partnership with 10° and Access Velocity (SEA) with additional support from Exit Space - From Studio to Stage program (SEA) and an Artistic Retreat at Higher Ground Community in Bend, Oregon.
