In order to examine the difficult topic of addiction and its consequences, Pushers will use celebrity culture as its lens, as a way to connect with Mantua youth and encourage them to share their own experiences. The project is part of Shaheed’s ongoing investigation into community-based methods of dance creation, as he attempts to break down barriers that make dance inaccessible to marginalized audiences.

Major support for PUSHERS has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional support from The National Endowment for the Arts.


We’re taking the power of pushers and making it a positive force back into our community.
