Curated by Gibney Dance Company
This Gibney Dance Company curated performance is an outlet for diverse choreographers who share the values of the Company’s unique model, viewing dance artists as innovators, generators, and activists. We will be presenting 'Retrograde: The American story through the eyes of…'. This work reveals several perspectives on cultural appropriation, and is filled with emotionally opaque images along with ironic commentary on the effect that slavery, segregation, and general racism have had on the Black American narrative. It describes the correlation between past and future, and hopes to inspire audiences to expand on the conversation and research of culture/ancestry, to learn from history and make it relevant for personal as well as social change.
