Traditional choreography and modern movement merge to create a unique art form during this contemporary Native American dance performance. Watch as a spectrum of innovative dancers from across the country come together to perform a wide-ranging program, mirroring the creative youthful artistry on view in Action/Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art, 1940s to 1970s.

Skillfully combining new breakdance traditions, Indigenous storytelling, and contemporary dance, each artist will showcase their unique voice in context with the rituals and customs of their cultures.

Action/Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art, 1940s to 1970s is on view through May 26, 2024.
