DANCE PLACE DC: What's Going On

Saturday, April 21, 2018, 4:00pm

Heart Under the Hoodie Adult Silent Party Fundraiser

Vincent E. Thomas, Artistic Director looks through the lens of Marvin Gaye's transcendent music and finds a reflection of the world today.

Taking inspiration from 1971's inimitable What's Going On, Marvin Gaye's insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspectives with new choreography by Vincent E. Thomas, Ralph Glenmore and Sylvia Soumah.

This evening-length work features Modern, Jazz and West African dance. What's Going On seeks to provoke thoughtfulness and spark conversations to ignite change in each community it touches.

Thanks to presenting sponsor, DuPont, with additional support from event sponsors Buccini/Pollin Group, Chase, Delmarva Power, Highmark Delaware, Navient Foundation, WSFS, and the Delaware Division of the Arts.

Project made possible, in part, with the support of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Delaware Special Presenter Initiative Grant.
