Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group
Choreography by Reggie Wilson

 
 

Choreographer Reggie Wilson’s (Moses(es), 2013 Next Wave; The Good Dance - dakar/brooklyn, 2009 Next Wave) deeply expressive postmodern work draws from the languages of the African diaspora, weaving elements of blues, slave, and spiritual cultures into contemporary and pedestrian movement vocabularies. Returning to BAM with Fist & Heel Performance Group, Wilson—who tours to the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Haiti next year as part of DanceMotion USASM, an exchange initiative led by the US Department of State and produced by BAM—presents a brand new work inspired by African-American figures throughout history who were conflicted and chose not to leave their home country in spite of pervasive racism. Five dancers engage with video projections in a series of provocative solos that overlap and intersect, asking: What does it mean to belong, and to not want to belong?
