Skin Against Metal, founded by composers Nanette Garcia and Maurice Minichino, is a multimedia interdisciplinary performance group dedicated to taking risky approaches to nurturing, creating and presenting new work. Each collaborative performance brings together an unlikely group of creatives, activists and techies who form a community with a commitment to explore connections that disrupt unconscious bias, broaden perspectives, and galvanizes audiences with provocative viewpoints. Living on the cusp of change is not always comfortable, but as a performance ensemble, the participants are likely to find common goals, share strategies and support, and offer each other freedom to be spontaneous and fully present for a new experience.
