Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group and
Compagnie 1er Temps
Choreographed by Reggie Wilson and Andréya Ouamba
Devoted to reinterpreting the movement languages of Africa
and the Diaspora through a postmodern lens, Reggie Wilson creates
fluid, grounded, and deeply expressive dances. Wilson and his
Brooklyn-based company Fist & Heel Performance Group make their
BAM debut with The Good Dance -
dakar/brooklyn, a work representing the fruits of a
collaboration with choreographer Andréya Ouamba and his Compagnie
1er Temps from Dakar, Senegal.
Combining Wilson's formalist approach with Ouamba's more improvisational style, the artists create a unique movement vocabulary as they draw from their families' roots in the Mississippi Delta and the Congo to ask profound questions about migration and identity. Featuring an amalgam of African and African American music, movement, text, and vocals,The Good Dance explores the genealogy of culture to consider the influence-real and metaphorical-of Central African culture on world performance forms.
