September 29
DNAWORKS presents HaMapah

HaMapah/The Map is a multimedia dance journey that traces the intersections of dancer Adam McKinney’s African American, Native American, and Jewish heritages. HaMapah/The Map weaves contemporary dance with archival material, personal interviews, Yiddish and American songs, and video set to traditional, contemporary, and classical music. In the piece, McKinney explores issues of identity, ancestry, and family.

As part of the program, immediately following the performance, DNAWORKS Co-Directors McKinney and Banks will lead a community dialogue with the audience about the core ideas of the piece.
