Every month from March through December 2021, Threads Dance Project will release some of Artistic Director Karen L. Charles’ top dances available pay-as-able from $1, $10, $100, or even $1,000 to view Karen’s selected works!
August’s work is Be Still Standing (2017) by McKnight International Choreographer, Salia Sanou. This pick is particularly special as Threads Dance Project will be touring this piece in France in 2022!
Here is what Karen says about these works:
“This piece was selected because of the significance of the choreographer. Threads was selected to host the McKnight International Choreographer, Salia Sanou, who created this work. This is what he said about the piece: ‘Today, segregation remains a social reality, as can be seen by police violence, re-emerging neo-Nazi groups, and an administration that threatens the rights and the expression of differences, mainly racial ones. For younger generations in particular, artists must raise awareness and draw attention to those issues.'”
Each release will be 20-30 minutes in length. Once registered, you will receive a private link and password that will allow you to view these works from August 16-29, 2021.
Don’t miss out on these works that started it all!
