The Program

Ladies of Hip Hop

Black Dancing Bodies Project: SpeakMyMind (Excerpt)

A collage of music, poetry and hip-hop choreography celebrating Black women and girls, this piece pays homage to cultural touchstones—schoolyard games, drill teams, the Fly Girls of In Living Color—unfurling the tapestry of what it means to be labeled a Strong Black Woman.

SpeakMyMind was commissioned by Works & Process.

NVA & Guests

Mont Blanc (Excerpt)

Inspired by The Great Fear in The Mountain by Swiss author Charles Ferdinand Ramuz, this new dynamic dance theater work delves into outdated beliefs, generational divides, power and more.

GALLIM

BRUCE (Excerpt)

Performed to the contagious music of Balkan Beat Box and Joanna Newsom, GALLIM presents an exuberant romp that plays with plurality, extravagance and imagination.
