Hear Daniela read her poem: Carbon Summer or Nuclear Winter at Poets House, April, 2013 when she appeared with other poets she hosted from http://www.Eco-Poetry.org/a site she edits and publishers on climate justice literature. Above, she danced as an Eco-Feminist throughout the 1970's performing THE BIRTH DANCE OF EARTH: a Celebration of Women and the Earth in Poetry, Music and Dance, when her poem THE NEW DANCE OF LIBERATION was published in MS. Magazine, 1977. She wrote EARTH DANCING: MOTHER NATURE'S OLDEST RITE research that determines the so called 'belly dance" was actually a "birth dance" done in imitation of birth contractions, the quintessential feminine dance of life, counterpart to the male "war dance" or "dance of the hunt." Daniela was represented by NEW FEMINIST TALENT, the same agency that handled appearances by Gloria Steinem, Bella Abzug, Flo Kennedy and other important feminists of the 1970's.
