Dance Became My Voice | Dance Film Screening & Community Discussion
November 26 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join 21c Durham alongside ADF choreographer Tony Johnson and documentary film artist David Delaney Mayer for a community screening of the documentary film Dance Became My Voice – a piece honoring the work and magic of Tony Johnson. This event is free and open to the public.
From David Delaney Mayer:
“I knew from the instant I met Tony that I wanted to capture some of the magic of who Tony is on camera. But, that’s really not an easy task. His magic is in the silence he creates. His beauty is in his stillness. He is a truly magical human being, but you need to spend hours with him to begin to see it. His impact on those around him and on his community is truly powerful but it is also gentle. If you spend twenty minutes with Tony at a coffee shop, you’ll start to get an idea, but if you spend a week with him, a picture forms: Tony lives for his community.”
Guests are encouraged to grab a drink in Counting House restaurant before gathering together in the Main Gallery.
