War Dance

Treading among the fallen bodies of her fellow performers, Nicole Sclafani of the Robin Becker Dance Company offers a choreographic interpretation of the Vietnam War in “Into Sunlight.” The performance was inspired by David Maraniss x’71’s book They Marched into Sunlight, which relates the stories of the Dow Chemical protest at the UW and the Battle of Ong Thanh in Vietnam, both of which took place in October 1967. In March, the UW’s Arts Institute hosted the Sunlight Project and Symposium, a three-day event that offered dance, art, history, and film exploring issues surrounding the Vietnam War.
