It’s about who’s in the room…
6:30pm on Sunday, March 10th, after months of envisioning, collaborating, researching and conversing, this “room” at Old Town School of Folk Music, will become the “space” for a continuing dialog on diversity…
The diversity that existed Then
50 years ago
beyond a century ago
will co-exist with the Now
that moment you decided to come be part of this conversation
the diverse legacies that each one of us carries will fill this space
open up our bodies to listening in distinctive ways
and bring forth discoveries that may be deeply personal
or simply intellectual
or to just listening. that’s enough.
with Moving Dialogs: Diversity+Dance, i curated with the vision to embrace the co-existence of diverse bodies & voices in one space. within the opening event – Diversity: Then/Now – this intermingling may bring out polarities, moments of unison & break open some new thoughts.
it’s all about who’s in the room.
