2020 has been a turbulent year. It is also an election year. We have had more time and space than ever to deeply feel the injustice, inequity, and systemic oppression of the infrastructure of the United States. We know artists play vital roles in times like these. Artists testify with embodied stories, compose the art that will present the history often buried and erased, and creatively enact the better world we know is possible. To support the massive mobilization for change in the United States and help sustain the momentum of the movement all the way to the election, DISCO RIOT will present Move American, a 9-week series of short dance films from September 7 – November 2. Each video will feature a different self-directed movement artist from somewhere in the United States, examining or sharing a social justice/political/human rights topic. These dance films are intended to serve as Public Service Announcements of sorts, with a clear action item linked to each film calling on folks to prepare and take action to VOTE.
