Dances for Solidarity is an ongoing effort organized by choreographer Sarah Dahnke to co-create dance with incarcerated people in solitary confinement.

Dancers Frederica Lewis, Ashley Richard, Jen Roit and Karilyn Surratt will perform movement created by Israel Balboa, Dushaan Gillum, Timothy Kennedy, Stantaniqua Scott, Michael Anthony Villarreal, Jose Villarreal, and Frank aka Silly Kreationz.
The performance will be accompanied by an exhibition of illustration, poetry, essay, and letter excerpts created by Dances for Solidarity’s incarcerated correspondents. This exhibition will be on display through October 30.

Dances for Solidarity will be included in an exhibition at Franklin Street Works in Stamford, CT. We will be creating a participatory performance, and ephemera from our project will live in the gallery throughout the life of the show. Audience members will be invited to participate in the movement sequence that we are sending to incarcerated people in the U.S. and view/read excerpts from the bios and letters of our incarcerated pen pals.
