Developed in conjunction with the 2009 Understanding Dance conference in Poland, which was hosted by the Dance Theatre Department of the State Drama Academy in Krakow and the Silesian Dance Theatre in Bytom. The events are made possible through generous support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding, the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, American Express, and the Silesian Dance Theatre. DNA's installation of Poland in the 1980s: Searching for Revolution in Dance was also funded, in part, by a grant from New York State Assembly member Deborah J. Glick through the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
