The Art of Making Dances (Not About Ferguson)

The Art of Making Dances (Not About Ferguson) Vermont Arts 2017

Dance performed by Kweku Bransah

The Art of Making Dances (Not About Ferguson) is a response to the Black Lives Matter movement and to the violence against African American men in 2016. It asks: what can artists do to respond to violence and injustice? How can participating in art be a meaningful activity in a world in which black men are being shot in the streets? This dance uses 19th-century minstrelsy, ballet, modern dance, and hip hop for its movement palette and pairs it with the sounds from the violent police encounters with Alton Sterling, Philando Castille, and Eric Gardner. Choreographer Robin Prichard is an associate professor of dance at the University of Akron. Performer Kweku Bransah is a Chicago area hip hop/modern dancer and a recent graduate of the University of Akron.

Time: 9/13/17 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Marlboro College, Serkin Dance Studio, Marlboro
