Immerse yourself in a dance event which celebrates the contributions of activists and non-profit leaders and reclaims space by eliciting stories of community agency, resilience, and transformation. Inspired by rich narrative, this work represents a powerful call for community oriented development in the face of rapid change, making a collective statement for the preservation of community as neighborhoods across the country inhabited for generations face cultural erosion, loss of businesses, and displacement through gentrification. Convergent Waves: Boston highlights successes in preserving the cultural fabric and accomplishments of these communities.
This is Lenora Lee Dance’s first performance in Boston. Convergent Waves: Boston will be the first iteration which will continue to shed light on the stories of displacement and gentrification in communities across the country, touring to San Francisco (June 9, 2022), Los Angeles (spring 2023), and New York City (fall 2023).
