Assistant Curator of La MaMa Moves: Gian Marco Lo Forte
Now in its 13th season, La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival is presented at The Ellen Stewart Theatre and the Downstairs Theatre & Lounge. This season's programming continues to support La MaMa's commitment to presenting diverse performance styles that challenge audience's perception of dance, and will feature performance/installations, experimental film screenings & public symposiums which address dance artists' engagement with the current political climate, as well as honoring diasporic histories and legacy, ancestral inspirations and inter-generational dialogue.
"The choreographers participating in La MaMa Moves! 2018 are all strong, powerful individuals, beholden to no one, answering to nobody but themselves, adhering to no one style or genre, holding on to not one physical practice, dance technique, or philosophy."

Press for La MaMa Moves! 2018
"This festival, now in its 13th season, shines its spotlight on choreographers exploring issues around race, gender, religion and exclusion."
