In response to the exhibition Stonewall 50, Rebecca French and collaborators will bring together jazz, contemporary, ballet, and hip hop dance styles with a range of music and costumes, including drag performance. Join us for a commemoration of the Stonewall Riots that sparked the gay rights movement and a celebration of vibrant queer artwork and performance.
