ARTIST HOUSE / Asya Zlatina + Dancers present CARRY ON, Virtually April 2 at 12:30 pm

ARTIST HOUSE / Asya Zlatina + Dancers, Philadelphia’s homegrown dance company, is excited to present a newly choreographed dance collaboration in response to today’s new normal. Enjoy it virtually from your home at artist-house.org on Thursday, April 2 @ 12:30pm. Unlike presenting previously existing dance steps separately but in sync, the new CARRY ON dance was designed specifically to reflect attention to the medium of its presentation – boxes on your screen.

Different from dance on film, and reflecting a dire need to keep creating in these times, it is a statement to the public that we will get through this world tragedy. For the many who we’ve lost, are infected, are suffering and have been impacted we say: You are not alone. Connect to your global community and return to the joy of movement, through technology.

CARRY ON is a dance collaboration created specifically during and for the time of COVID-19. It is a response to the anxiety of uncertainty, isolation, the major economic drain and immediate shut down of arts opportunities worldwide. It is an anthem to the world to CARRY ON, encouragement and a boost in times of trouble.
