 "Declaration,"  2018.

 "Time in a Mind Gone Elsewhere," 2018.

As a performer, Hagan explores the intersections of mindfulness, social justice, and the human capacity to reimagine reality through artistic pursuits. Preferring interdisciplinary, non-traditional, durational, and site-specific work instead of the proscenium, Cara's work invites audiences and collaborators to consider the politics of performance and access to artistic material through a liberatory lens. Her solo works have been performed across the world.

Cara also choreographs for professional groups, non-professional community groups, and universities.
