Known as the most ephemeral art, dance is also intellectual thought, labor and creative achievement. How do we honor the legacy of dance, its pioneers and innovators? How do we tell the deeper stor(ies) of dance? Who does (or does not) get to shape and tell these stories? How do we preserve the record of dance as a touchstone for future artists and communities?

Faciliatator: Eva Yaa Asantewaa
Core Participants: Arlene Yu, Jill Williams, Paloma McGregor and Margit Edwards

Part of Gibney’s Center Line series.

Curated and hosted by Senior Curatorial Director, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Center Line is a series highlighting issues in the dance community through monthly conversations (Long Tables) and experiential gatherings (Circling Back).
