014 : Yara Travieso : Dance Choreographer

Yara Post

Yara Travieso‘s a multi-media artist. Follow me here: she’s a Julliard-trained dancer and choreographer who combines video and music to create avant-garde pieces which she directs and produces herself.

Through her uncanny ability to fundraise, her pieces have already been presented in Lincoln Center and the new Frank Gehry building in her hometown of Miami.

We hear from an artist who admits she’s completely consumed by her work, her grand plans for her latest project, and how burning out is part of the process.

“When I get invested in a project I can’t get out of it, so I tend to obsess over it and not be able to do anything else. It’s almost like you have some kind of wonderful virus but you gotta see it through and get it out of your system.” – Yara Travieso
