Opening/Judson
a dialectic of dark and light
Judson Memorial Church FREE

What is the historical data, aesthetic memory laid within a particular site? How do we both claim and shed this skin as an act of radical acceptance? How do we simultaneously lift and lean into the weight of history?

Continuing his 2014 exploration of Black Male Revisited: Experimental Representation through the Ephemeral Form, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko in collaboration with scholar Brenda Dixon-Gottschild and sonic artist Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste will craft an evening length opening performance, improvisational jam and celebration at Judson Church that blurs the line between audience and performer. In an attempt to honor and trouble the historical site of Judson Church as a location of worship and experimentation (while allowing limited access to artists who exist on the fringe of the Judson dance experience), all are invited to explore movement, style, heritage, sound, and light in a safe, non-judgmental open environment.
