Pushing the boundaries of the art form which has propelled it into its fourth decade, Battery Dance memorializes Adel Euro, a brilliant young dancer from Iraq whose life was tragically cut short when he was killed by a suicide bomb on July 3, 2016. In championing his legacy, Battery Dance Company hopes to inspire American audiences to challenge their preconceived notions of Muslims and embrace our common humanity. Combating Islamophobia through Dance and Spoken Word takes the form of storytelling through the choreography and performance of dancer Hussein Smko, the first Adel Euro Fellow, and spoken memoirs of a boyhood in Baghdad by journalist Riyadh Mohammed. Both are Iraqi Muslims relocated to the U.S. The program is intended to introduce American audiences to Middle Eastern Muslims who challenge the association between Islam and violent extremism.
