Project Tool Residency @ Dancing Grounds
March 23 - March 31
The Project Tool team will be in residence at Dancing Grounds in New Orleans to prepare for the fall 2019 premiere. The Project Tool residency will occur alongside Dance for Social Change, Dancing Grounds‘ annual festival centered at the intersection of arts and advocacy efforts and driven by their high school dance company, DG Uprising. This year’s theme is Reclaiming Our Home: Gentrification and Displacement in New Orleans. As part of the festival programming, Project Tool will facilitate a workshop on Fri, March 29 that invites our community into their process and will engage the conversation of gentrification on a national scale. Their young artists in DG Uprising will also have an opportunity to witness a professional choreographic process which will inform their artistry and provide them with skills and training to further their artistic practice.
