Abrons Arts Center -- March 28, 2017
facilitated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa
Fourth Arts Block (FABnyc) paired up Movement Research for their first collaborative Dance Block Salon. The organizations invited artists from their respective communities to show work in an atmosphere of non-judgmental sharing, radical support and community building.
I was honored and thrilled to be asked to facilitate the evening and guide the feedback sessions.
Artists showing work included Rina Espiritu, Jenny Boissiere & Dancers, Cain Coleman of ColemanCollective and Shantelle Courvoisier Jackson.
