ANIMA is co-stewarded by Daniel Cabena and Luke Hathaway. 


Dan is a singer — a countertenor — and a scholar; a teacher of music/voice and of the Alexander technique; and a passionate co-creator and commissioner of new musical/theatrical works. He also makes music with his hands, playing modern and Baroque violin and viola as well as vièle and recorders. You can learn more about Dan here:

Luke is a poet, librettist/lyricist, and performer, who collaborates with artists and ensembles near and far in the work of mythopoeic storytelling; he is particularly passionate about telling the trans and queer stories that are close to his heart. You can learn more about Luke here:
