About This Event
Miami-based dance pioneers Karen Peterson and Dancers (KPD) present their fourth annual Forward Motion Physically Integrated Dance Festival & Conference (FM4). With leading support from the National Endowment of the Arts, KPD presents a powerful line-up of never-before-seen works in 2 evenings of performances gracing The Miami-Dade County Auditorium stage. This three-day event features Full Radius Dance, esteemed choreographer Victoria Marks and KPD themselves in a full program including performance premieres, panel discussions, and educational workshops. Produced by KPD annually, Forward Motion is one of the first festivals and conferences anywhere in the world showcasing physically integrated dance companies and choreography. This groundbreaking contemporary dance form - inclusive of those with and without disabilities, on stage, and in the audience - challenges artistic and societal perceptions of what defines physical beauty and beautiful movement.
