Description

West Coast Premiere

The potent and evocative productions of Reggie Wilson and his Fist & Heel Performance Group fuse contemporary dance with the spiritual traditions of the African Diaspora, punctuating the movement with body percussion, aspirated breath, singing and shouts. For this new work, The Good Dance – dakar/brooklyn, Wilson teamed up with Congolese choreographer Andréya Ouamba to examine the metaphoric, historic and real-world parallels between the Mississippi and Congo rivers and their respective cultures.
