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.
