The Dances Are For Us

  • Danspace Project 131 East 10th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Working with a diverse group of dancers with various relationships to Zionism, Israeli folk dance, and other classical and folk traditions, The Dances are for Us investigates the instrumentalization of dance by nation-states. Through the work, we model accountability to our own heritage, histories, and to each other.
