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

10 years

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.
