Event Location: 684 Purchase Street New Bedford, MA 02740 | Start/End Time: 7:00PM/9:00PM

Cuban born Jose Mateo explores the ways dance artists are creating deliberate social change. While the arts have always had an impact on the way social order is perceived, many artists in today’s highly-connected global culture openly declare their intended commitment to “save the world” through their work. Experiments seem to proliferate in dance circles because the medium is so well suited to community building. How much impact do these artists really have and is their work done at the expense of artistic excellence and innovation? Tickets for this event are FREE, please RSVP at zeiterion.org!
