ADT at Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography

When Ananya Dance Theatre’s artistic director, Ananya Chatterjea, received an Urban Bush Women Choreographic Center Initiative Fellowship, it carried with it residencies at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) at Florida State University, Sept. 23-28, 2019, and Feb. 15-22, 2020.

This film by Rheannah Wynter and Chris Cameron captures the essence of those residencies, work with FSU Dance students, and research for “Fires of Lost Homes,” with dancers Kealoha Ferreira, Alexandra Eady, and Lizzette Chapa, and Sharon Bridgforth, writer, Spirit McIntyre, composer, the Florida People’s Advocacy Center, and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Our thanks to MANCC, Florida State University, and Urban Bush Women!
