Danse4Nia Meets Forces of Nature: The Move/Meant

Danse4Nia Meets Forces of Nature: The Move/Meant



What is YOUR Move/Meant? What is the PURPOSE of dance? What are our dances…our moves ‘meant’ to accomplish for our society…for our environment?



Exploring the distinct movement sensibilities and role of dance as a way to heal oneself, one’s community and the world, the Move/Meant series explicitly promotes the history, legacy and lineage of African-American dance.


Themes of deep ecology, spirituality and social responsibility are explored through the critically acclaimed choreography of New York’s Forces of Nature founder Abdel Salaam, whose unique blend of contemporary modern, traditional West African, ballet, house and hip-hop dance all embody African-American dance traditions.



Join us in the exploration of dance as a healing modality. Presented as part of the renown Philly Fringe Festival, there will be a premiere show on September 12th with an encore performance on September 13th – both at Freedom Theatre’s John E. Allen, Jr. Theatre.


Saturday, September 12th at 8:00pm

Sunday, September 13th at 4:00 pm
