2018 David Rockefeller pARTnership Award winner Square released the next film in its remarkable series For Every Dream: Exit12: Moved by War.
The latest installment follows veteran and dancer Roman Baca and his company Exit12, as they create and perform pieces that speak to the experiences and effects of war.
"From the beginning, the artistic mission of their dance company, Exit12, has been to use choreography as a means of communicating the diverse and nuanced experiences of military veterans. Exit12 holds workshops with active duty and retired veterans, with the goal of coaxing out creative expression through movement of the body. For some, the more abstract form of dance allows them to communicate when words have failed them."
In 2018, Square won the David Rockefeller pARTnership Award in tandem with Cheyenne River Youth Project for their documentary Lakota in America. We had the honor of speaking with Justin Lomax, Head of Operations of Square and Malcolm Pullinger, Creative Director of Even/Odd Films in conversation with Julie Garreau of CRYP in November 2018. Check out the webinar on ArtsU to learn more about Square's partnerships and the incredible film series.
