Cantua, from Houston, Texas, has a BFA in Dance from Sam Houston State University and is currently pursuing a MFA in Dance. In the summers of 2013 and 2014, she trained at the American Dance Festival. This summer, she attended the Dance Italia Contemporary Workshop in Lucca, Italy. As a graduate student, she finds that her biggest inspiration comes from her peers, as everyone brings something new and different to the table.
Cantua will be presenting her piece, “To What End” at this year’s festival. Her piece explores the themes of time, clocks, and circularity. She explains the inspiration behind her piece:
“The inspiration behind “To What End” is our human experience of time. I did a lot of research on different cultural perceptions of time and thus led me to create this work based off of my research.”
Don’t miss “To What End” in this year’s National Showcase on August 12th at 7:30 PM.
