Sarah Dahnke with Dances for Solidarity

April 7, 2017
7:30 pm—9:30 pm

Sarah will present work from Dances for Solidarity, a collaborative project developed through correspondence with people in solitary confinement. Sarah and her team created a list of simple movements to share with people in solitary confinement, who, in return, were invited to perform and expand upon the dance by adding choreography of their own.

Sarah Dahnke is a choreographer, multimedia artist, and arts educator. In addition to performing during the exhibition, Sarah will present artifacts from Dances for Solidarity, a collaborative project developed through correspondence with people in solitary confinement. Sarah and her team created a list of simple movements to share with people in solitary confinement, who, in return, were invited to perform and expand upon the dance by adding choreography of their own. Dances for Solidarity invites creative collaboration to an under-represented and often invisible community and sheds light on the physical conditions of the prison structure.
