No Boundaries: Dancing the Visions of Contemporary Black Choreographers
Friday, April 6, 2018 at 7:00PM
The Billie Holiday Theatre
1368 Fulton street
"For over 15 years, Gesel Mason has been performing solos choreographed by prominent African American choreographers. The solos offer windows into the choreographers’ lives, illuminating the unique inventions, legacies, and aesthetics of these prominent Black choreographers--including what these artists were up against historically, culturally, and personally. With nine commissioned solos, Gesel Mason’s dancing body has become a living archive of over seven decades of choreographic vision that expands the range of work by, for, and about African Americans. In an effort to share and preserve this rich history, No Boundaries is transforming into a digital archive, which will feature interviews, dance-for-camera shorts, and documentation of the selected choreographies. This presentation of No Boundaries at the Billie Holiday Theatre will be “the last live performance” of the project, featuring solos by Gesel Mason, Donald McKayle, David Roussève, Bebe Miller, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Rennie Harris, and a recently commissioned work by Kyle Abraham. Be part of history as this presentation will be documented for inclusion in the archive."
