100 Ways to Remember Me

Part of the Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival 2018

Performance begins at 11am.

About Dance Exchange

Dance Exchange is committed to breaking boundaries between stage and audience, theater and community, movement and language, tradition and the unexplored. Founded in 1976 by Liz Lerman and under the artistic direction of Cassie Meador since 2011, Dance Exchange is a non-profit dance organization based in Takoma Park, Maryland. Over our forty-year history we have:

-Created more than 250 groundbreaking dance works that explore content as far ranging as nuclear physics, ecology, prayer and action, aging, and the advancement of racial equity

-Expanded where dance is happening through thousands of performances that have taken place in forests and hospitals, on stages, in shipyards and senior centers, and along a 500-mile walk

-Engaged and collaborated with partners as diverse as scientists, city planners, foresters, and human rights lawyers

-Developed an ever-evolving body of creative practices that we advance through our institutes, trainings, publications and programming in our studios
