SOCIAL MOVEMENT CONTEMPORARY DANCE (SMCD) PROMOTES SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH CREATIVE ARTS AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. SMCD FOCUSES ON PRESENTING WORK TO DIVERSE AUDIENCES THAT REFLECTS THE HISTORICAL RAMIFICATIONS OF SOCIAL INJUSTICES AGAINST ALL PEOPLES AND THEIR IMPACT ON CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL IDEAS AND VALUES.
Social Movement Contemporary Dance was founded under the Artistic Directorship of Elijah Alhadji Gibson. Gibson has a passion for creating work that evokes thought and excites action. It is this passion that moved Gibson to start Social Movement Contemporary Dance the summer of 2018.
“I think it is important to share our experiences; only then can we begin to understand each other. I am a storyteller at heart, and passionate about creating work that addresses the human condition”.
