DanceMotion USA brings Keigwin + Company, leaves behind memorable choreography and collaboration

In late March, American modern dance troupe Keigwin + Company visited Tunisia from New York City as part of the DanceMotion USA program, their final stop on a tour across Africa. The American company engaged in daily workshops with 35 professional Tunisian dancers, concluding with a collaborative performance at the El Halfaouine Tunisian National Theatre. During the week-long program, American dancers also engaged with the wider dance community in Tunisia, conducting masterclasses and “Let’s Make a Dance” sessions in five art venues in Tunis and Monastir. We are delighted to see the collaboration between these communities of dancers continue through social media and shared videos and photos. DanceMotion USA was a wonderful opportunity for us to share American dance and culture with Tunisia, but it was also a chance for Americans to learn more about Tunisian dance, music, and history. The talent, passion, and dedication of the Tunisian artistic community is inspiring!
