Dancing Queerly X Eva Yaa Asantewaa – June 20th
Featuring performances chosen by guest curator Eva Yaa Asantewaa. This incredible evening of queer dance work brings a cutting edge dance concert to you at home.
Eva writes: “Jay Bouey, Ni’Ja Whitson, Maria Bauman-Morales, zavé martohardjono, and Orlando Hunter Jr and Ricarrdo Valentine of Brother(hood) Dance! are among the most thoughtful, driven and exciting artists on the contemporary New York scene. I have had the joy of witnessing their work and passion for community, justice and healing. Each one reminds me of what Toni Morrison wrote in Beloved: “She is a friend of my mind.” Indeed, I consider each a friend of my mind. They see and capably gather us, helping us to put the many pieces we are in order so that we may breathe freely and survive. They are artists we need in this challenging moment and beyond this moment.”
