"I must hold myself accountable for not being open, which is what I falsely prided myself on." When it's not so clear who you are, you live in a fused, in-between world. Picking apart and glueing pieces together that would not usually fit, until it becomes something entirely different. And what if after this, you no longer knew where your truth was? And then you judged those who did not make up the same collage as you, because you thought they were judging you. Lost and confused a new journey emerges to find peace with the pieces. DiverCity is about a Canadian born Muslim living in America reflecting on her judgements and how she got here, incorporating dance with script work a new world based on an existing one emerges. The bottom line: don't we live in one world together?

Movement in C is a home. The place you can always come back to and reinvent yourself every time. Artistic Director Salma Allam & founding member Cathy Richards with their companies Salma Allam Dance Theater and CV Projects, strive to create work that is relatable to audiences. Venturing separately and together, their works are unified through expressing that part of us that we are afraid to bring forth: vulnerability. An authentically vulnerable company, the base of Movement in C provides the forum for exploration and unity, and the opportunity for others to come into their own. Welcome home.
