Making Moves presents “Is”, a collaboration between Persi and three other dancers whose works presents a collision of artistic and creative approaches centered around the theme of self-sabotage. This live performance “explores how behaviors such as isolation, procrastination, over-indulgence and self deprecation affect a person’s relationship with themself and with their community.” The performance will take place at 7:30 PM at Charlotte Street Foundation’s Black Box Theater (South entrance at 3333 Wyoming Street).
