Dance Roundup: Politics, Uganda, Field grants

Politics and the Dancing Body, an exhibition of the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, focuses on the work of 20th Century choreographers who used dance as force for social justice, human rights and cultural diplomacy, from World War I through the Cold War. Open now through July 28. For more information, click here.

Spirit of Uganda returns to New York City, bringing a dynamic troupe of young drummers and dancers from the East African nation.
Spirit of Uganda combines cultural African traditions with contemporary concerns and addresses real life issues – issues that have affected the children personally – such as devastation in the wake of HIV/AIDS, poverty and war.
See this acclaimed company perform at NYU's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, March 2 (8pm) and 3 (2pm and 8pm). For information and ticketing, click here.

Congratulations to New York choreographers Luciana Achugar, Rachel Cohen and Michelle Dorrance, all winners of The Field Dance Fund grants. Learn more about The Field and this program here.
