About The Other Side

Move above what divides us. Clover’s mom says it isn’t safe to cross the fence that segregates their African-American side of town from the white side where Anna lives. But the two girls strike up a friendship, and get around the grown-ups’ rules by sitting on top of the fence together.

Jacqueline Woodson’s simple yet powerful book "The Other Side" comes to life in an evening-length dance piece from choreographer and Kennedy Center Artistic Advisor for Dance Education Hope Boykin. When literal and figurative fences keep us apart, can we find the courage—and creativity—to knock them down?

Adapted from the book by Jacqueline Woodson, illustrated by E.B. Lewis Directed and Choreographed by Hope Boykin Original score by Ali Jackson
