MBDance August 2012: Bodies that Matter

SUMMERSTAGE in MARCUS GARVEY PARK

When: August 11, 2012 at 8:00 pm
Where: Marcus Garvey Park, Madison Ave, E. 120-124 St.
Cost: FREE!

Join us for one of New York’s treasures–free outdoor summer concerts. We are thrilled to be part of New York’s SummerStage Series, and honored to share the evening with Kùlú Mèlé African Dance & Drum Ensemble!
MBDance will show a word premiere, Stand, a personal exploration of bipolar disorder intent on exploding the myth that we are not all grappling with mental illness one way or another. We are also showing 50 Ways to Say…, catalyzed by the murder of Sean Bell and so many other black men by police officers.

LET YOUR SOUL FLY
Come fly into the floor with us!

When: August 27-30th, 2012 4:30-6:00pm
Where: Peridance Capezio Center, 126 East 13th Street, NY
Cost: Single class-$17, Full Workshop-$68
To Register: Click here.

Maria Bauman will teach a contemporary workshop this summer at Peridance that you do not want to miss! MBDance classes broaden dancers’ physical resources while remaining true to their current range and strengths–contemporary dance emphasizing powerful, spatial fluidity and floor-work. We sweat our truths, flying into the floor safely and using our hands like feet!
Dancers with all shades of experience are welcome.

THANKFUL FOR MBDANCE & FRIENDS!

BODIES THAT MATTER

Check out the website for Dreamers Adrift. They are undocumented young people who have grown up in the U.S. and are organizing around their right to be here.

www.dreamersadrift.com

“A creative project ABOUT undocumented youth, BY undocumented youth, and FOR undocumented youth. We are trying to document the undocumented. We’re putting our life on display through videos, art, music, spoken word, prose and poetry. 4 Lives… 4 College Grads… Representing 1 DREAM for countless others.”

KEEP SWEATING YOUR TRUTH–YOUR OWN PARTICULAR PERSPECTIVE–AND WE’LL SEE YOU AT SUMMERSTAGE NEXT SATURDAY!
