"Gumbo Cypher": an Immersive Street Dance Experience

by Artivism Dance Theatre

Artivism Dance Theatre's latest work highlights marginalized movement styles in an immersive and interactive dance experience. We lift up styles and subcultures that are undervalued and thus underrepresented and unacknowledged. The immersive experience leads the audience through a journey of community centered dance, highlighting movements of the African diaspora and their relationship with New Orleans' history and artistry. In this work, Artivism seeks to redefine what we consider valuable within our own dance community through a communal engagement of movement. We hope that through this performance we can generate a deeper understanding of the important place that dance holds in our community.
