Sharon Picasso Joins Studio Stories Podcast this Week

Stories are among our most potent tools. We need to unearth old stories that live in a place and begin to create new ones. We are story makers, not just storytellers. All stories are connected, new ones woven from the threads of the old. – Robin Wall Kimmerer, paraphrased

Join ARENA DANCES for our NEW season of Studio Stories, a podcast reminiscing on Twin Cities dance history. Commencing this week, we sat down with Sharon Picasso to learn about her journey. 

Sharon Picasso (she/her) is a Minneapolis based movement, performance and transdisciplinary creative Artist and Founder/Artistic Director of Picasso Projects and Lupa Studio. Her work as a freelance performance and dance artist lives parallel to her work as a choreographer for the past 25 years. Sharon’s creative and collaborative practice has expanded into design including sound, light and installation. Paramount in Sharon’s collaborative process is cultivating an inclusive, respectful and sustaining creative environment where value is placed on the wholeness of an individual. 

Studio Stories will air each Thursday at noon with new guests joining the host to reminisce and share their memories and history with our dance scene.
