AMP SEED SERIES: MY BODY, MY MOVEMENT
Thursday, June 8, 7PM
Admission: $10 suggested donation. Free for MOCAD members.
In the words of feminist-anarchist Emma Goldman, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution!” The power of dance has long sustained social justice organizing as a technology of resistance that brings communities together for collective expression, joy, and healing. Join us for a conversation and demonstration with movement artists across abilities, ages, and styles. The panel features dancers and choreographers organizing communities through dance and storytelling in Detroit, including Benito “Mav One” Vasquez (Motor City Street Dance Academy), Cara Graninger and Gwynneth VanLaven (DanceAbility Detroit), and Derrick Finely-Bell (Thee Plastic Dollz dance crew). The conversation will be moderated by choreographer and performance artist Jennifer Harge.

We are thrilled to partner with Allied Media Projects for their first in-person Seeds Series as they continue their mission of rooting in Detroit. This season they celebrate how we care for our bodies, our neighbors, and our communities through the mediums of dance, film, food, and visionary organizing as we collectively model more creative and liberated futures.
