Staying connected and working together, jazz musician Lehman and dancer Moore-Dunson have what they call a "monster collaboration" coming up Wednesday, June 2, at 6 p.m. (it will be streamed live.)*

With the support of the Museum of Contemporary Art (moCa), Alright? has been commissioned by the museum to Martin Creed’s No. 3398 EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT. See Creed's work here.

Moore-Dunson wrote to his former teacher, dance instructor Kelly Berick at Firestone to say:

"This piece, with my original choreography and an original score by Tommy, helps celebrate the end of moCa’s exhibition season, which explores the essential question, 'What is freedom?'"

"Immediately following the performance, Tommy and I will be joined by Tizziana Baldenbro, executive director of SPACES, for a conversation about the development of Alright?, improvisation and the creative ways in which artists respond to one another's work."

This performance will take place in the Museum of Contemporary Art's Gund Commons. The performance will be live-streamed so that audiences can experience the work from the comfort of their homes. *Get your FREE tickets here.

Dominic Moore-Dunson is founder/CEO of MooreDunson Co. LLC. The APS graduate is a creative entrepreneur, producer, choreographer, D=and dancer.

Saturday, May 29, prior to Alright?,  he will be leading Behind the Curtain with Dominic Moore-Dunson, a movement workshop onsite at moCa. Learn more about the event and register here.
