DESCRIPTION:

Movement artist Jon Boogz has choreographed for luminaries ranging from Mikhail Baryshnikov to Gloria Estefan, had his work featured on So You Think You Can Dance, and collaborated with artists across disciplines to explore social issues through movement and creativity. Now Boogz will come to USC for a performance and interactive lecture on the ways dance can be used to advance social change.

Join us for an inspiring program featuring the short film Color of Reality, a collaboration between Boogz, movement artist Lil Buck, and 3-dimensional painter Alexa Meade; a live performance of Boogz’s solo piece Love Heals All Wounds; and performances by students from the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance. In a lively discussion, Boogz will reflect on the role of the artist in transforming society and inspiring change.
