Spain Arts & Culture Presents:
Everybody Loves to Cha Cha Cha by Bego Anton
This is a story of women and men who dance with their dogs, and of dogs who dance with their humans. Musical Canine Freestyle is a choreographed performance in which a dog and a human move to music together. They choose a song they both like and a costume that matches the lyrics. They dance in unison, as dancing partners. They weave, jump, bow, spin, roll, walk backwards, forward or move diagonally. And sometimes, the bond between them is so strong that they enter the pink bubble, that dimension where they become one being and the rest of the world disappears.
Pulitzer Center Presents:
Iron Closet by Misha Friedman
Hundreds of LGBT people, viewed as “enemies of the people" by the government, are leaving Russia and seeking asylum in the United States. Photographer Misha Friedman documents how members of the LGBT community in Russia live under these conditions. They are prisoners in their own homes, hiding their identities, afraid to live a full life while looking for hope elsewhere. Curator: Evey Wilson
