MamLuft&Co. Dance premieres a new dance theatre work, DECENT DISSENT. This work of Modern Dance tells the story of the May 4, 1970 shootings at Kent State when the National Guard opened fire into a crowd of 3,000 unarmed students protesting Nixon's invasion of Cambodia. Four students died and nine were injured in a tragedy that shook the nation to its core. DECENT DISSENT is choreographed by Jeanne Sopanha Mam-Luft, a Cambodian refugee, and created in collaboration with Kent State University for the 50th anniversary of the shootings.
FREE talk-back with the artists after the performance on Saturday, April 18.
