La MaMa Moves

Festival Curator: Nicky Paraiso 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 13th Season of La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival has been made possible with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, with special thanks to City Council Speaker, Corey Johnson, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, Ford Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Harkness Foundation for Dance, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, and The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust.
