As artistic director of Philadelphia's Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble, Taras Lewyckyj oversees performances that combine Ukrainian and American dance aesthetics, culled from folkloric traditions and contemporary styles. In his recent Center-funded project, Lewyckyj recovered, restaged, and documented lost works of acclaimed Ukrainian dance artist Anatoly Kryvochyzha. The finished film of this project by Henry Nevison includes interviews with folk art specialists Anthony Shay and Toni Shapiro-Phim.
