One of the earliest ideas of dance anywhere® was to change perspectives through a creative moment where none of our differences mattered… imagining that if everyone stopped for a moment in time to dance…maybe we could shift some thinking to be resourceful and open to different ideas.
There are no prerequisites to participate in this public art performance and it is totally free.
Since 2005, thousands of people on 7 continents, 66 countries and 714 cities from all background and abilities have stopped and danced with the world for dance anywhere®.
Now with the public discourse so charged, discordant, obstructive, frightened and vitriolic…
not only am I asking
“what if the world stopped to dance?”
“Can we find any common ground?”
I have created a numbered edition letterpress invitation to dance anywhere® that I am sending to what I see as political opposites:
President Obama – Mitch McConnell
Pope Francis – Donald Trump
Michelle Obama – Fox News
Please send me your suggestions of others to invite.
Can art change the public discourse?
Let’s rock the world on March 18th and find out!
