Produced by Mason/Rhynes Productions, NO BOUNDARIES: Dancing the Visions of Contemporary Black Choreographers, is a solo project created by Gesel Mason that celebrates the depth and diversity of style and vision in the field. Mason created NO BOUNDARIES to illustrate that the work of Black artists and dance companies was not limited by the stereotypes “of dances in the Ailey or Horton technique, as African dance, as Negro Spirituals, or more about tricks than art,” states Mason. Performances feature the commissioned solos, video documentation of the artists’ creative process and the development of the project. Co-presented with Mason/Rhynes Productions. NO BOUNDARIES is a co-commissioning project by Dance Place in partnership with 651 Arts, Reston Center Stage and the National Performance Network Creation Fund. It is also funded in part by Bates Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. This presentation of NO BOUNDARIES: Dancing the Visions of Contemporary Black Choreographers is one of a series of programs designed by the National Performance Network (NPN). NPN is an independent organization begun by Dance Theater Workshop and is comprised of arts organizations in 40 cities and 25 states. NPN is made possible with major funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency).
