Summary
Fifteen Days and Nights of Dance was a dimension of the Awakening Project, which observed Washington, D.C.'s high murder death toll among young African American males. The site-specific dance documented in this edit took place in Washington's Dupont Circle, a hub of the city's downtown residential and business districts, during a busy summer lunch hour. Dance Exchange members, community dancers, and members of Dancers of the Third Age perform improvisational structures flashmob style (before flash mobs were a common phenomenon). Dance Exchange ensemble members Amie Dowling and Tom Truss are seen in leadership roles.
