Created by DNAWORKS co-directors, HaMapah/The Map is conceived and performed by former Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre dancer and Chair of the Dance Department and current Chair of the Dance department at New Mexico School for the Arts Adam McKinney and directed by internationally known director Daniel Banks. First premiered in 2010, HaMapah/The Map has engaged audiences around the world. 

HaMapah/The Map weaves contemporary dance with archival material, personal interviews, Yiddish and American songs, and video set to traditional, contemporary, and classical music. In HaMapah /The Map McKinney explores issues of identity, heritage, and ancestry. As part of the program, DNAWORKS Co-Directors McKinney and Banks lead a community dialogue about the audience's relationship to the core ideas of the piece.
