Moving Through It: Engaging Dance to Confront Disaster

Moving Through It: Engaging Dance to Confront Disaster

Our piece examines the phases a community goes through in the face of an emergency, which in this piece is represented by an oncoming hurricane. The dance will follow the phases that our partner, the NYC Emergency Management Department, and others in the emergency management field refer to as the “disaster life cycle.”
