Six Dancers. Four Countries. One week to transform lives.
 
In Moving Storiessix dancers from New York's Battery Dance travel the world from India to Eastern Europe to the Korean Peninsula to the Middle East, teaching some of the most vulnerable youth about expressing themselves through movement and creativity. Addressing issues from gender violence and poverty to persecution and prejudice, these students respond in extraordinary ways as they prepare to perform in their communities after only a week of rehearsal. Tickets are $12 and are available at https://www.moma.org/calendar/film/3915.
