Moving in Community
We at Robin Becker Dance stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, and with all those who seek to end the injustice of institutionalized systemic racism. We share in the extraordinary grief and outrage at the abuse we have witnessed. We hold a fierce commitment to learning and listening both within ourselves and the larger world, and pledge to participate in the needed cultural change with determination, integrity, hope and love.
As dance artists, we use our bodies to express the truth and immediacy of our shared humanity. In the midst of this challenging time, we remain hopeful that the language of movement and the embodied art we offer will provide an experience of community and of the essential unity to which we all belong.
I strive to explore the relationship between our common human spirit and its physical expression. I like to think of my work as a journey — a rite of passage that enables the dancer and the audience to mutually rediscover an often forgotten ground.
