What might global citizenship look like in the dancing body?

Tune in from home for a virtual conversation that transcends the spoken word. Showcasing dance submissions from across the globe, this season's [un]WRAP embraces Transcultural Fusion Dance (TcFD) to imagine what fair trade cultural exchange should look like. These works ask what it means to let nation-state boundaries fall away and be part of a deliberately and thoughtfully blended global family.

Featuring a week of interactive symposiums that culminate in a streamed, virtual performance, [un]WRAP invites audiences to lean in and engage with the ever-evolving landscape of dance.

Transformation without robbery: global citizenship in the dancing body

"[A]s globalization and a digital era have made cross-cultural information more readily available than ever, the fusion of cultures through melding dance forms has become increasingly common. While fusion has always existed, this new form, in particular, is called Transcultural Fusion Dance and has been on the rise since the 70s."

2021’s [un]WRAP: global collaborations in transcultural fusion dance

For the past year and a half, dancers across the world have been forced to completely reimagine one of the most important aspects of their art form: live performance. Likewise, the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Theatre and Dance has worked to redefine the meaning of live performance, notably for its annual showcase “[un]WRAP.”
