ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
Founded in 2005 by Joya T. Powell, Movement of the People Dance Company is dedicated to unearthing historic and present sociocultural issues and addressing them through the healing elements of dance. Primarily a dance theater company, their choreography blends dynamic contemporary dance with traditional world folk dances, and develops a sensitive balance of pedestrian gestural phrases with grounded visceral movements that use breath and musicality at its core. The company is comprised of dancers from diverse multicultural backgrounds and international experiences.
Public and Community Enagement Programs are made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Senior programs are made possible through The Malka Fund.
