NCCAkron Dancing Conversation: Black Male Choreographers
Join five Black choreographers from across the country for a conversation on racial identity, masculinity, dance making, resistance, and finding definitions of artistic success.
Join NCCAkron this spring for our series of Dancing Conversations! These free public events locate dance among broader topics and offer an opportunity to demonstrate the aesthetic range within the dance field.
Past Dancing Conversations events have covered topics such as dance on camera (held at the Akron Public Library-Main Branch), nature as creative collaborator (held at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Conservancy), dance’s role in cultural diplomacy (held at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland), and the intersection of dance and emerging technology (held at the Akron Art Museum).
Dancing Conversations will take place on the third Thursdays of April, May, and June at 7pm Eastern. All conversations will be virtual and open to the public.
