Prometheus Dance has backed social justice and common humanity through Art for the past 30 years. We believe in the power of Art to inspire thought and instigate change.
As the Artistic Directors of Prometheus Dance, we take special interest in matters of political and social change. It is part of our mission to provoke thought and often create dance that functions on some level as an agent of change in the world. In 2002, with the assistance of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Boston Center for the Arts Spotlight on Dance Series, we created Apokalypsis, a full evening length piece inspired by the Kosovo war and the displacement of refugees world wide. It made reference to the migration and denegration of Jewish and immigrant populations during World War II, and the issue remains as relevant today as it did then. The critical nature of this issue has surfaced again in the Middle East, affecting the entire world in a time of fear and overpopulation. We as artists have the opportunity to engage the public on a larger and more immediate scale. Therefore the company will be working with Korhan Basaran, Nimbus Dance (New York), and Basaran’s company in Turkey on a project of Korhan’s creation addressing the Syrian refugee crisis happening in the world right now. Since the projects inception Turkey itself has come under extreme political strain. The world can turn on a dime these days and no one is excluded from the possibility of losing home, family and culture. We will work to speak as one.
