Festival Co-Director Stella Adelman explains, "There are many ways that an artist may address such challenges - be it from the content of their choreography, to looking at who has a voice, to their process." Adelman adds, "Climate change is the defining subject of our time," citing a recent UN report that specifies the urgency.
