PERFORMANCE: Gatekeepers/All that you touch, You Change

“Gatekeepers/All that you touch, You Change" is immersive dance-theater that explores the roles of artists in communities as everyday gatekeepers. A gatekeeper in a social system decides which of a certain commodity – materials, goods, and information – may enter the system. The gatekeeper’s choices are a complex web of influences, preferences, motives and common values. With transformational dance dialogue as the container, “Gatekeepers/All that you touch, You Change” seeks to unearth this web of influences, preferences, motives and common values from the perspectives of womynchoreographers of the African diaspora.
