Dance + Social Justice


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

This FREE event is the last of three lectures for 2017-18 as part of the Minnesota Dance and the Ecstasies of Influences series. 'DANCE + SOCIAL JUSTICE' is Part 15 of this overall series.

With speakers Ananya Chatterjea, Deneane Richburg, Patrick Scully, Arwen Wilder, and Karen Charles.

It is no coincidence that dance and politics both create movements. Intersecting bodies and social concerns have always brought voice to marginalized communities and causes. Local dance makers create awareness and calls for actions through performances filled with dance and humanity. Find out what motivates their desires to make a difference and insert politics into their art.

The 2017-2018 Minnesota Dance and the Ecstasies of Influences series, curated by Michèle Steinwald, is presented by Ordway in partnership with The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts and the Performing Arts Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries.
