At Pones, we use our bodies to speak our minds and believe dance is a powerful tool to amplify and explore issues of social justice and transformation. MOVE started as a response to the protests that began in the summer of 2020, and originates from the long-term systemic racism that permeates our culture and justice system. With the knowledge that there is more than one way to put our bodies on the front lines, we created a platform for Performances & Collaborations, entitled MOVE. MOVE harnesses Pones’ history of creating art for social justice in order to facilitate and fund the work that independent artists need to share, now.

Do you have an idea for the next installment of MOVE? Information on the program, past pieces, and application details can be found here:
