Dear friends of BIODANCE,
I am proud of this work, and humbled by the generosity and depth of the work of the artists involved in this show. BIO/DANCE & Social Justice is a collection of work that brings various reflections and diverse perspectives of inequality in society today. Following sold out houses during The Rochester Fringe Festival for the past two years, BIODANCE returns to Geva Theatre Center Center’s Fielding Stage, featuring all new premieres of choreography, performance, music and sculpture in four different programs.
