Main Display

- Dance -

“The dance is strong magic. The body can fly without wings. It can sing without voice. The dance is strong magic. The dance is life.” – Pearl Primus, 1919-1994

Dance is many things to many people. It can be a means of connecting with culture, whether your own or another. It can be a way to express yourself without words. It can even be a way to fight back against societal norms. Whatever it is, dance is something deeply personal to every dancer. This month we celebrate the many different things dance can be.  

Mini Displays

- Shakespeare -

Shakespeare (and his body of work) is one of the most celebrated and analyzed literary figures of all time. His plays and poetry continue to be retold and reconfigured to illuminate our world in diverse ways. Check out all of the ways Shakespeare continues to inspire discourse about the way our world works. You can read old classic plays and poetry or explore how others have been inspired by his work.

So, whether you have been a fan of this format, or if you are brand new to it, here is a selection of materials that fit within the varied genre of animation and graphic novels.
