"With Live Ideas, we are creating multiple entry points for audiences to understand and explore some of the underlying ideas expressed through movement-based art," said New York Live Arts CEO Jean Davidson.

We are grateful for his participation in this new program, which is underwritten by the Ford Foundation and other generous supporters."
