Friday & Saturday, 7pm
Post-performance discourse & reception on both evenings
Doors open 5pm Friday, for exhibit opening and reception in N4th Gallery, False Face: Whose Face?
Conceived and directed by renowned choreographer Reggie Wilson, Moses(es) is about the migration of peoples and cultures out of Africa and the leaders and followers who made such journeys. Wilson draws from the ritual and body languages of the Blues, slave and spiritual cultures of Africa and Africans in the Diaspora, combining them with post-modern structures and deconstruction and his own movement to create what he calls "Post-African/Neo HooDoo Modern dance." His works are a part of the dialogue and ongoing investigation on how much of what came out of Africa affected and influenced world evolution and that this influence is still true today.
NewArt New Mexico and the North Fourth Art Center are honored to present Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group in New Mexico for a third time to perform on the first of two final weekends of Global DanceFest. Moses(es) is a piece that perfectly represents everything we have expected from Global DanceFest--a philosophical/ historical/ cultural framework for global exploration and captivating dance.
