Another vibrant and successful DNAWORKSHOP took place on April 25th at University Settlement's Houston Street Center. The group of diverse, international artists, educators and activists is growing! The April DNAWORKSHOP was especially exciting as members shared poetry, playwriting, dance and visual projects followed by discussion and feedback. Thanks to everyone for their wonderful energy! Special thanks to University Settlement Arts Program Curator Alison Fleminger for an informative session on the history, work and impact of the organization's commitment to underserved populations. Thank you University Settlement for the generous donation of your space!

The next DNAWORKSHOP will meet on Sunday May 30th, 2-5pm. Stay tuned for exact location. To RSVP please contact

Panel appearance


Daniel and Adam sat on the opening panel of NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development's Forum on Citizenship and Applied Theater moderated by Professor David Montgomery. Together with Michael Rohd and Kayhan Irani, they discussed what it means to be a citizen-artist and the role of Applied Theater in contemporary cultural contexts.




Adam is graduating with an MA degree in Dance Studies with concentrations in Race and Trauma Theories from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU. During the course of his studies, Adam received two Gallatin Jewish Studies Grants for his work in Israel this past fall and four Dean's Research and Conference Grants to conduct work in Washington, Wisconsin, Hungary, and Spain. Adam was also the recipient of the NYU Bronfman Jewish Artist Fellowship in 2008. From all of us at DNAWORKS, congratulations!!!
