Dancing Through It – Expressions of Movement From the Pandemic

Cambridge Dance Complex – Kendall Square/Complex @ Canal, on Sunday, April 24, 3 – 4:30 PM

Dancing Through It – Expressions of Movement From the Pandemic,hosted by Celebrity Series of Boston, is a pre-event gathering for the upcoming production of Alvin Ailey, scheduled for April 28 – May 1, 2022 at the Boch Center Wang Theater in Boston. Celebrity Series of Boston is inviting 8 local dance community members to share their stories through dance, spoken word, poetry and video at the Cambridge Dance Complex – Kendall Square/Complex @ Canal, on Sunday, April 24, 3 – 4:30 PM. The pandemic has changed our lives in so many ways. Boston area dancers, like many artists and Ailey dancers, have used their art form to cope through the long months of the COVID lock-down. Dancers created new work and perfected old moves, and adjusted to a digital space holding rehearsals, lessons and workshops on Facebook live and Zoom. Yet, they remained through their works as they moved through a devastating time that has been transformative for many. Shaumba-Yandje Dibinga, Founding Artistic Director, OrigiNation Cultural Arts Center is the Emcee for this special event. Collaborating partners include Boston Dance Alliance, OrigiNation Cultural Arts Center, and Cambridge Dance Complex.

PRESENTATION FORMAT – Eight dancers will be selected to perform from the applications submitted. Format for the performance include dance, spoken word, poetry, or video.

DEADLINE TO APPLYFriday, April 15, 2022. Dancers will be selected by Monday, April 18th.

HONORARIUM – Selected dancers will receive an honorarium of $100.00

TECH STUFF – Each performer will have up to 5 minutes to perform. Performance can be in the form of dance, spoken word, or a video submission. If you are presenting a video, we need to receive video content from you via MP4 received by NOON on Friday, April 23, 2022. Any questions, contact Johannah@thewilliamsagency.net
