An Interactive Fundraiser for They Dance for Rain

They Dance For Rain, a collaborative and cross-cultural dance-making project in Nairobi, Kenya, holds their third fundraiser at The Foundry: Soft Shoe Boom Boom Spin Blue!  This interactive event includes an un-silent auction, tap dancers, a myriad of musical players, and live painting all composed and arranged by you! Artist Joe Wheaton will return to fill The Foundry with his extraordinary immersive projections. The evening will open with the original tragicomedy performance of Civil Motions: Scenes of the Familiar and the Absurd  by JoJo McDonald and Stefanie Weber.

They Dance For Rain is directed by Pittsfield-based dance artist Stefanie Weber with associates Monika Pizzichemi (fine arts photography) and JoJo McDonald (performing arts). Since 2012, they have successfully partnered with many artists and groups with a shared interest in the value of expanding Tap Dance for all. They perform, educate, exhibit, mentor, support, and represent. Through this they have witnessed truly life-changing results from sharing this art form. Much of this work has been made possible through the kindness and generosity of others.
