Memoirs of the Sistahood – Chapter 3: Ave Maria

Choreographer Becky Beaullieu Valls previews the latest chapter in her series of contemporary dance pieces called Memoirs of the Sistahood. Chapter 3: Ave Maria is a study of mother-and-daughter-hood, chock-full of humorous vignettes about six sisters growing up Catholic in Louisiana. The evening-length work, which combines choreography, sculpture and film, plays this weekend at DiverseWorks.

Catherine Lu chats with Becky Beaullieu Valls.
