How do you depict the history of human migration through dance? Award-winning choreographer Peter Pucci has returned to his native Baltimore to put together a large-scale dance project called, Migration. It brings together local high school, college, and professional dancers, using movement and music to represent humankind’s connected lineage. Peter Pucci tells us about his unforeseen pivot from sports to dance, and why our linked ancestry matters. Migration will be performed on Sunday, January 28th in the Wellness and Athletic Center of CCBC Essex at 2 p.m. The performance is free, but tickets are required. More information here.
