Addressing Systemic Racism Through Art.

NEW PROJECT

 We are sharing the premiere of a new video project: Building Bridges, a partnership, spearheaded by Charlotte Art League, to address and eradicate systemic racism through art.

Martha has been busy over the past three months collecting video footage from diverse dancer/choreographers around the state which she has edited into short works of art by superimposing images from the Black Lives Matter Murals and painted plywood panels that were installed over windows and doors Uptown during the 2020 protests.

 

This series of eight short videos will inspire a live performance event in fall 2021, Coming Up for Air, that highlights independent dance professionals and their courageous journeys through 2020 against the backdrop of pandemic and social justice.

 

Please consider making a donation of $5 or more to support the live performance.
