We’re thrilled to have helped Rosy Simas Danse get this vital support from NEFA. It will support Simas’ new work, she who lives on the road to war, an immersive installation and dance performance project created in response to our global loss and the collective need to grieve, to condole, and to come together in peace and reconciliation.
The Intersections Summit is designed for and with the New England community to amplify the leadership that dance plays regionally alongside industries New England is known for, such as education, the sciences, and political and social organizing. The second of three interconnected components, this curated convening is also an opportunity to foster a culture of abundance through intentional sharing, learning, and community building that reimagines New England dance thriving.

Hot off the presses, check out this fabulous video of Two Person Operating System Type 2—a collaboration between choreographer Susan Marshall and visual artist Martha Friedman.
