Danspace’s Food for Thought series returns!

Part food-drive, part performance, Food For Thought collects canned food donations to support local food distribution programs. Food will be donated to Metropolitan Community Church of New York : a church of LGBTQI people and allies.

This installment of the beloved series will be guest-curated by Jason Rodriguez (aka Slim 007). A dancer, choreographer, teacher, and regular in the Golden Globe nominated Pose, Rodriguez has taught Vogue around the world and currently teaches at various schools and institutions throughout New York City, where he was born and raised.

Rodriguez will host two evenings of improvisation across multiple dance forms with Jose Lapaz Rodriguez, Dahlia Khair, Rinor Zymberi, and Rodriguez himself.
