Contemporaneity is a new presenting series by Anandam Dancetheatre featuring new works and works-in-progress by artists practicing in Asian, African, Latin American, Arab and Indigenous dance forms. Responding to the widespread use of “contemporary” to describe European and white American theatrical dance, Anandam re-centers “contemporaneity” as a shared inquiry, animating a current and collective interest in holding the dancing body in the world. This performance features aerial and multidisciplinary artist Diana Lopez’s De Agua y Barro, African dance artist Mafa Makhubalo’s Lentswe la Setjhaba (Voices of the Land) and Afrofusion artist Esie Mensah’s Shades of Blackness.
