UNC Asheville’s Dance Program will present Moving Voices Oct. 27-29, a series of site-specific dances, as well as a community dialogue, in on- and off-campus locations.

These events, all free and open to everyone, will feature UNC Asheville dance students and community dancers. Bambara says “Moving Voices will engage with social justice issues in North Carolina and Germany, including identity struggles during political and economic change, ethnic differences, class differences and gender-based inequalities. We are wedded to the specific intersections of these issues with the sites that we are interested in working in. These works intersect with notions of home, losing home, and re-patriating ideas of self and space in reference to shifting identities in democracies.” Site-specific performance at Pack Square: 3 p.m. Dialogue about dance: Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center, 120 College St. 4 p.m.
