La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival, which takes place in our venues and features over 50 emerging and seasoned choreographers, reflects La MaMa’s longstanding mission to performance that transcends politics and unifies cultures.
We are thrilled to present nascent French choreographers who have been virtuosic dancer/performers in major world-class dance companies, as well as significant contributors in the work of progressive choreographers working prominently in the field of contemporary dance, who are now transitioning from the role of dancer to that of maker.
