On Thursday, April 8th, Making Moves will share a new work by local dance artist Caroline Dahm. This dance film, called “Face Me I Face You” explores the constant feeling of living head-on in competition with one another while we are all striving for the same purpose. After the screening, we will be joined by Caroline Dahm for a discussion on the film, her work, and her career. The event begins at 6:30pm via Zoom and Facebook Live, link provided upon registration. As always, the event is free and open to the public.
