Event Description

Mark DeGarmo Dance will present its 13th annual curated transcultural transdisciplinary Salon Performance Series for Social Change 2023 on 6 Thursdays at 7pm ET: three salons virtually on January 5, February 2, March 2 via Zoom; and 3 salons on April 6, May 4, and June 1 in person at MDD Studio Theater 310 at The Clemente Center in NYC’s Lower East Side. These salons are the first in person MDD performances in its Studio Theater 310 since the city’s 2020 lockdown. MDD will present the works-in-progress of 4 performing artists at each salon. VSPS is a curated transcultural transdisciplinary sharing of original works-in-progress with audience response encouraged and facilitated by dancer, choreographer, writer, researcher, and Founder, Executive & Artistic Director of MDD, Dr. Mark DeGarmo.  

This year during MDD’s 35th Anniversary, MDD will produce 24 presenting artists and groups. 17 of the 24 artists and groups are New York City-based, illuminating MDD’s role in helping New York City rebound after the significant flight and permanent loss of artists, arts organizations, and dwellers from the city over the current 2 years and 8 months of the COVID-19 pandemic. The artists MDD selected beyond New York City show the nonprofit organization’s commitment to support and connect to a wider public under-resourced, under-represented, noncommercial global and national dance artists. SPS 2023 artists additionally hail from Democratic Republic of Congo, California, Kentucky, and New Jersey. MDD SPS 2023 artists and their works represent a wide range of creative artistry and cultural backgrounds, including communities such as, Asian American and Pacific Islander; Black, Indigenous, and Latinx People of Color; LGBTQIA+; People with Disabilities;and seniors.
