Remembering artist and dancer Lisa Buffano

Posted in Dance, Disability Art, and Performance

As the anniversary of the death of artist and dancer Lisa Bufano is upon us, I wanted to highlight her brilliant work and her life by sharing a blog post from December 2013, written by her brother Peter Bufano, with an introduction by Andrea Shea. The post includes a Boston public radio interview from 2007 before she was leaving to come to the Bay Area to work with Axis Dance.

“I wanted to find everything that a human can be.”
