Monica Bill Barnes & Company
Keep Moving
Tues, Apr 6 – Sun, Apr 11, 2021
Online

With choreography and interviews from the cancelled premiere of The Running Show at the American Dance Festival, Monica Bill Barnes & Robbie Saenz de Viteri collaborated with sixteen dancers from New York City’s Hunter College to create this online collection. Keep Moving offers insight into the stories of these dancers and how they are preserving their identity as artists and movers amidst a global pandemic with no studios or theaters to move in.  

Keep Moving is delivered in chapters; some are videos, some are audio only. Some chapters have specific instructions, like to take a walk while you listen. Some are long, some are short. All of them try to answer the question of how a dancer, a woman who works so hard to keep moving, finds a way forward while live performance is on pause.
