Dance/NYC Town Hall: American Dance Recon 2014

3:00pm - 9:30am

Mark Morris Dance Center

3 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, New York — United States

Coffee and cookies will be served before the panel begins. 


Join Dance/NYC and American Dance Abroad for a town hall discussion with 10 international dance presenters and producers participating in the third edition of American Dance Recon/New York. Made possible with lead support from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, American Dance Recon is a unique symposium for international presenters to reconnect with American dance and to use it as reconnaissance to better appreciate the diversity of American dance. In this town hall, New York City dance makers can learn about participants' work and curatorial styles, and trends in dance abroad. 

American Dance Abroad launched in July 2011 as a program to expand opportunities for equitable cultural engagement between American dance artists/companies and their international counterparts. American Dance Abroad's mission is to expand international visibility for American dance by creating opportunities upon which longer-term, mutually beneficial relationships can be built. Major support for American Dance Abroad's projects is provided by the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's Fund for National Projects.
