The Larger Conversation

The Synergy of Dance in our Lives

Thursday, April 22, 2021
6 - 7 pm
This is a virtual program

Just like language, the field of dance has evolved through innovation and lived experiences. Dance is about a feeling, a connection to something bigger, spiritual, or personal. Shen Wei’s approach focuses on a transference of energy throughout the body that involves thoughtful collaboration and intentionality. Hear experts in the field discuss the individual and collective impact of dance.

Moderated by Pamela Tatge, Executive & Artistic Director of Jacob’s Pillow
