CKDC will be presenting via a webinar on Zoom with presenting partner T-Rex.

CKDC hopes to model how every single person has the power to create change, and how they are using dance and performance arts as a vehicle for community organizing, culture-shifting, and public activism. CKDC will be exploring the interweaving of dance, performance art, and sustainability. They will discuss their season concerts (including the postponed Human Disturbance show), the organization's journey to achieving zero waste, and the community initiative, Kinetic Community Connections.
