Open Dance Project Embraces the Activism of Woody Guthrie in 'BOUT A STRANGER at MATCH TheaterOpen Dance Project Embraces the Activism of Woody Guthrie in 'BOUT A STRANGER at MATCH Theater
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2017

Beyond the obvious parallels of migration and worker's rights, issues that are still relevant today, Woody Guthrie continues to inspire artists because of his "no apologies" style of activism. Artists looking to expand the dialogue around difficult political issues embrace his words as a way to find common ground. Just look at Lady Gaga singing "This Land Is Your Land" at Super Bowl LI. It is from this place-a desire to activate the public in social political discourse-that Annie Arnoult, the founding Artistic Director of Open Dance Project, has crafted "'Bout a Stranger."

But what I didn't know is what a fascinating life he had and how resonant his works would still be today. And I especially didn't expect to be emotionally affected as I was. But we'll come to that.
