eMotion Arts is a Bay Area-based dance company that creates works that are meant as social commentary and reflections of current issues.
Directed by Mariana Sobral, eMotion Arts exists to create and showcase a cohesive body of work that highlights and celebrates Oneness by bringing together dancers and artists of various backgrounds. The Company embraces diversity by creating an inclusive space where dancers and choreographers incorporate different dance styles and collaborate with musicians, guest choreographers, and educators to bring their artistic visions to life.
This approach makes the Company a place where its members can further their artistic development and nurture their own Artistic Voice. This is the company’s third season presenting work at SAFEhouse Arts RAW program.
