About the Grant

$20,000 to support Art/Family/Our Lives (MAP 2009), a dance, exhibit and happening about love. As a couple, choreographers Nora Chipaumire and Solo Badolo aim to tell their story as traveling artists who met far from their homes through the magnetism and magic of dance. Dance New Amsterdam will present the concurrent evening-length dance (entitled "Again") with music from Obo Addy, along with an exhibit on culture and family, a month of dance technique classes taught by the artists, a panel discussion, and a traditional Zimbabwean sudsu. The experiential residence and resulting commission is a look into the heart of Africa, the timeless connection of love, and overarching meaning of family.
