Virtual Premiere: Motion to Move – ONE NIGHT ONLY

New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

Join NOMA for a free virtual one-time-only screening of Motion to Move, a performance event by renowned dancer and choreographer Edward Spots with Magnolia Dance & Company. Originally presented in NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts on Juneteenth, Motion to Move honors the history of the holiday, while considering the legacies of enslavement and brutality that still exist within our current prison system and elsewhere. The performance will be available to watch in full exclusively during this virtual premiere on the museum’s YouTube channel.
