INTO THE STREETS

Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company's dance film Into The Streets, was shot in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. With wit, great will and a cast of dancers of diverse backgrounds, choreographer and dancer Daniel Gwirtzman leads the enthusiastic into the streets of Salvador da Bahia, the former capital of Brazil. Filmed at the time of historic protests this film is a peaceful response to the violent uprisings. In the heart of Afro-Brazil, blocks away from where Michael Jackson famously shot his video "They Don't Care About Us," the dance encapsulates the Company's manifesto that dance is for everyone.
