Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group
Choreography by Reggie Wilson
In his latest work, Brooklyn-based choreographer Reggie Wilson examines the biblical story of Moses, using the ancient tale to question our notions of leadership. Inspired by Zora Neale Hurston’s novel Moses, Man of the Mountain, Wilson traveled to Israel, Egypt, Turkey, and Mali to consider the global impact of African migrations. The result is this rich dance piece—set to live music—that asks how we lead and why we follow.
How does Wilson’s production reflect this quote, from Moses,
Man of the Mountain: “No man may make another free. Freedom
was something internal.”
