About the event: With money raised through the Rebecca Davis Dance Company’s original Darfur performance in April 2008, Global Grassroots was able to fund a theater group in Rwanda to help educate the population about the causes and consequences of violence against women. Video footage of the theater group will be combined with excerpts from the original Darfur ballet performance to demonstrate tangible ways in which audience members can aid those affected. In addition, photographs smuggled back from Darfur by U.S. Marine Brian Steidle will be shown along with readings by his sister Gretchen Wallace Steidle, founder of Global Grassroots and co-author of “The Devil Came on Horseback,” an account of Brian’s time as a soldier in Darfur. Excerpts from the award-winning documentary “The Devil Came on Horseback” will also be part of the event.
100 percent of the profits from Dancing to the Edge of Darfur will go to Global Grassroots, a non-profit organization advocating social change for women in war-torn Sudan.
