now my hand is ready for my heart: intimate histories is a deep exploration of an artist’s life, which investigates aging, identity, sexuality, class and race. It is also a celebration of an artistic community as it grows older and continues to make work, both individually and with each other.  Choreographer/dancers Irene Hultman, Jon Kinzel, Vicky Shick, & Paz Tanjuaquio collaborate and perform with Paraiso.
Nicky Paraiso and La MaMa are participants in the Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships, funded by the William & Eva Fox Foundation and administrated by Theatre Communications Group.
