MBDance Awarded with Dance Advancement Fund

MBDance is one of twenty-five dance organizations to be recognized by Dance/NYC via the Dance Advancement Fund in February 2020. The fund is made possible by support of the Ford Foundation. The purpose of the Fund is to address the inequitable distribution of resources in the dance field and advance resilience by supporting dance makers with annual budgets between $25,000 and $1 million.

We are using the funds to support presenting and touring of MBDance’s current work-in-progress Desire: A Sankofa Dream. Desire is a hybrid work that transcends the proscenium to create a mansion of imagination, with interdisciplinary art in various rooms of a house or presenting venue. This work celebrates and demonstrates desire, invitation and boundary as queer people of color survival technologies.
