In the last 3 years, a central part of Culture Mill's work has been linking dance and embodied arts to non-arts sectors. Moving Through, one of our primary programs, weaves the creative process of Contemporary Dance-making with innovative approaches to Parkinson’s Disease. It began with They are All, our commissioned performance from the American Dance Festival, which developed into a multifaceted project featuring classes and workshops, outreach initiatives, a mixed professional working group and a forthcoming pilot research study in collaboration with Duke Movement Disorders Clinic.
On May 27th, at 7pm join us as Culture Mill co-directors Murielle Elizéon and Tommy Noonan, Dr. Jeff Hoder of Duke Movement Disorders and collaborators share the history and future of the program from artistic, scientific and experiential perspectives. We will also share exciting details about new parts of the program, such as the upcoming pilot study at Duke, plans for future classes in Durham, and our efforts to lead workshops in Alamance County not only for people living with Parkinson’s, but for aging populations in general.
The free event via Zoom is intended to raise awareness about this innovative approach to Dance and Health, and to provide opportunities and resources for new people to engage with our initiatives.
