AMP Residencies provide artists an opportunity to perform several shows in New Mexico, visit schools, do workshops and get to know our beautiful state and people. These are great opportunities for the groups and for all of us! Diana will be here for a few days, performing in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe, as well as doing some community projects.
The presentation is part of Center Stage, a public diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with support from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding. General management is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc.

"We are living in confusing times, in a stunning era, and it seems that the only way to be saved is if we remain together. I want the listener to enter the ocean by my hand, with all of our pains and fears. To go into the deepest part, perhaps to get lost, and come back safe and sound together."
