Digital School Day Performances

Streaming Jan 18 – 29, 2021

Cleo Parker Robinson Dance

Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, presents a special School Day Performance that includes three seminal works from the company’s repertoire: Resist, The MOVE/ment, and Mourner’s Bench.

This presentation demonstrates how the arts continue to be a powerful catalyst for positive social transformation and healing. The works showcase a diversity of dancers, in both culture and genre with each piece addressing themes of struggle, social justice, and unity, a message which resonates as deeply today as it did during the civil rights movement.
