Movement Research and Fourth Arts Block (FABnyc) partner to present FAB x Movement Research: Spring 2017 Dance Block Salon. A FABnyc program, Dance Block Salons encourage community engagement and networking opportunities through seasonally presented performance salons. For each Dance Block Salon, FABnyc partners with a different organization. This salon is presented in partnership with Movement Research. Each organization has invited artists from their respective communities to show work, featuring performances by Rina Espiritu, Jenny Boissiere & Dancers, Cain Coleman of ColemanCollective and Shantelle Courvoisier Jackson. The event will be facilitated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa.
Eva Yaa Asentewaa has been working with FABnyc on Response, a series focused on fostering a culture of support and care in our artist community by offering artists informal settings to show work and give feedback. With this Dance Block Salon, Dance makers are welcomed into an environment of non-judgmental sharing, with audience as eager as performer to contribute to the conscious encouragement that good work needs to flourish. Eva Yaa Asantewaa will share with us this transformative intention, and guide us through to a new place of radical support.
After the performances, please stay and have a drink with the FABnyc, Movement Research, Eva Yaa Asantewaa and the artists! After the performances, please stay and have a drink with the artists! RSVP is strongly encouraged; seats will be released on a first-come-first-serve basis.
