Join TAG for a workshop drawn from an arts-based research project and multi-disciplinary performance Same Story, Different Countries. SSDC was a two-year project exploring the socio-political phenomena of racism in the US and South Africa which recently culminated in performances and workshops in Johannesburg and Cape Town, led by Dr. Lynette Young Overby and A.T. Moffett. This workshop was part of that project and Dance TAG is glad to be able to share it with Philadelphia-area dance teaching artists.
