Our public events may have been canceled due to Covid-19, but that can't stop us from dancing our way to the polls!
Starting September 9th, we’ll be launching 2 short videos a week, for 10 weeks. Each video will showcase choreographers offering dance pieces from the past and present. Kicking off, Alicia and Keelan use the power of dance to express the urgency of voting, as well as other concerns, through their pieces Sudden Vote and K E E L A N: A Visual Portrait of a Dancer, respectively.

50 DAYS/50 STATES

8:00 - 9:30 PM EST
This free interactive event invites guests from all fifty states to dance together in the virtual space and kicks off Luna's Voting Writes Project, a two-month interdisciplinary arts event featuring commissioned films, plays, songs, and interactive experiences.
Attendees at 50 States/50 Days are invited to represent their states through costumes, create Zoom backgrounds that highlight why voting matters to them, or simply come as they are and prepare to dance their way to the polls. This opportunity for national social connection will also feature updates on voting procedures, including how to check voter registration and key dates for voting in every state.
Presented by LUNA STAGE in collaboration with Dance the Vote and The Andrew Goodman Foundation.
