Bring your family to this unique dance workshop with Ellen Fisher! Now in its 13th season, La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival 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.
“Ellen Fisher—dancer, teacher, documentarian, choreographer—has been honored for her long commitment to and participation in the Meredith Monk Ensemble. A palpably spiritual performer, Fisher dances with a simultaneous lightness and gravitas; her own work draws on her deep knowledge of South Asian ritual, and lovers of the Monk repertoire recognize the way she seems to slow the work so that there is always time for a fully embodied prayer.” -TimeOut New York
