Celebration of Black Men (dance, music, theatre; 85 minutes)

Tyrone Bevans (dance): Getting Out the Door begins a discussion about processing trauma to find resilience in order to step into the world. Tyrone began his journey in dance while studying at the Mark Morris Dance Group and Martha Graham School for Contemporary Dance.

J Bouey (dance): Holding Onto Innocence looks at the duality of innocence, a child-like innocence and not guilty of a crime, and the futile attempt to hold onto it. J has a Movement Research Van Lier Emerging Artist of Color Fellow for 2018, Dancing While Black Fellow for 2017-2018, and performed with Elisa Monte Dance from 2015 to 2017.

J will be joined by Dre Drummond/Dre.Speaks. Dre grew up in Queens, and earned his B.F.A in contemporary dance from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where he worked with choreographers such as Bill T Jones, Susan Jaffe, Doug Elkins, Brenda Daniels and many more. DRE speaks is a multifaceted platform in which Dre expresses himself through the movement of his body and the words of his mouth. Through exploration Dre uses the unique qualities of poetry, movement, and film.

Owen Valentine (violin/jazz fiddle): His soulful renditions of his original music and soul classics are just a starting point that lead to the creation of spontaneous works of music. Owen has performed or recorded with George Duke, Gil Scot Heron and Surface, Mary J Blige, The OJays, Santana, Teddy Pendergrass, Anthony Hamilton and more. His most recent project collaboration was with Emmy award winning Tap dancer Jason Samuels Smith,"Transformation", at New York's Lincoln Center.

Anthony Wills (theatre): "Its good to be alive"- celebration Ahmed El Motassem and all the unknown brilliant artists of the world. Recent performance credits include Rob in Ace the Case with Susan Sarandon, Richard in Cassanova Was a Woman, a guest appearance on Alpha House and Denzil Best in the Swedish film “Monica Z” directed by Per Fly. He has performed all over the country in his unique style of clowning, dance, singing and spoken word.
