In celebration of DWB’s fifth anniversary year, choreographers Jaimé Yawa Dzandu and Maria Bauman/MBDance perform and discuss issues concerning equality and leadership in dance with Eva Yaa Asantewaa (InfiniteBody) and DWB founder Paloma McGregor.
Dancing While Black is “an artist-led initiative that supports the diverse work of Black dance artists by cultivating platforms for process, performance, dialogue and documentation.” DWB centers the vision, creative work and community activism of dance artists of the Black diaspora. Live performance, video of DWB fellows and discussion.
In the same way that to become a social human being one modifies and suppresses and, ultimately, without great courage, lies to oneself about all one’s interior, uncharted chaos, so have we, as a nation, modified and suppressed and lied about all the darker forces in our history.
$15 in advance / $25, 2-hours prior to performance
