The Urban Bush Women Choreographic Center has announced its second cohort of awardees and fellowship candidates. Our own Maria Bauman-Morales is one of them, along with Ananya Chaterjea, Hope Boykin, Stephanie McKee, and Ni’Ja Whitson! The new Cohort was selected through a nationwide vetting process to identify choreographers who have distinctive artistic voices, compelling point of views addressing particular issues of cultural narrative and history, and exemplified readiness for the program.
The UBW Choreographic Fellowship Program is structured over two years and includes a 9-month planning process with Fellowship Candidates, followed by a full year of Fellowship activity. The program supports the development of work dealing with complex narratives addressing race, history, cultural identity, ethnicity and pressing social issues.
We are thrilled that Maria and MBDance are being recognized with this national choreographic award! Read more about the fellowship and the other awardees HERE.
