The Arts as Lifeline:
Dance, Parkinson’s and Aging Well

Presentation by David Leventhal
Mark Morris Dance Group | Director, Dance for PD®

Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014 | 9:30 - 10:45 a.m.
UNCW McNeill Hall, room 1005

David Leventhal, Director of Dance for PD, discusses the origins, objectives and successes of a 12-year collaboration between Brooklyn Parkinson Group and Mark Morris Dance. In his talk, Leventhal makes the case for the role that the arts—and dance in particular—play in helping people maintain a sense of human identity in the face of health challenges. Using Parkinson’s as a case study that reveals entrenched ideas about the efficacy of healthcare, Leventhal discusses how the artistic and creative elements of dance open doors for a wide range of people who otherwise risk entering a state of permanent medicalization, and how participation in the arts provides a lifeline that allows individuals and families to focus on possibilities rather than limitations.

Free and open to the public.
