From the Press Release:
Brooker will lead a small group of dancers and anyone else who is interested in joining in a simple but expressive movement exercise at the two peace demonstrations taking place in the Triangle on January 25th and 26th. No dance experience is necessary to participate! Just come wearing white if you’d like to join in. When asked about her motivations for holding these Dance for Peace events, Brooker says:
“Around the time of the Iraq invasion, hundreds of people were coming to the weekly demonstrations in Durham, and it was a relief to me to be able to gather with others and express my opposition to the war. The demonstrations have continued without interruption since 2003, but the numbers are tiny now. I know opposition to the war is still out there and growing. I’ve been living overseas for two years and feel like I’ve been able to recharge my batteries in that time. So, I’d like to give some of my energy to the peace movement here.”
