Inlet Dance Theatre’s Dominic Moore-Dunsonhas continued to develop his project, The Black Card Project. EXCHANGE Choreography Festival was privileged to have Inlet, Dominic and Kevin come spend time at the festival as Featured Artists in 2017. It is great to see the work still perpetuating.
From their FB page: “The ‘Black Card’ Project” is a live action dance-theatre cartoon that examines the narrow definition of blackness and the African-American ideal of the “Black Card”*. \

It is a simple philosophy here at THE BELL HOUSE; make connections by bringing people together through dance. Art that seeks to defy a fractured view of the world by creating culture that cares for the soul and is concerned with human thriving. For me, it isn’t enough to just make dance for dance’s sake; it is my belief that it is the connective power of people that makes art worth engaging. We do that by taking our interests and talents and challenging the ways we connect them to something tangible in the human experience. It is through these connections and tangibilities that we see the true power of art and dance manifest back to relationships with and through people. In my view, what matters is people; the time and space of making work refract and overlap revealing and creating new possibilities for human connection.
