The Good Dance-dakar/brooklyn
Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group and Andréya Ouamba/Compagnie 1er Temps
Thu – Sat, Apr 1 – Apr 3: 8:00 pm

Brooklyn-based choreographer Reggie Wilson returns to YBCA with The Good Dance – dakar/brooklyn, the culmination of a multi-year collaboration and cultural exchange with Congolese contemporary choreographer Andréya Ouamba and his Dakar, Senegal-based company 1er Temps. An evening-length program featuring movement, text and live vocal work, The Good Dance melds the rich art, culture and history of each man’s ancestral past, incorporating the rhythms of African, Caribbean and African-American dance to create a theatrical world that passionately reflects upon the connections, both intimate and metaphoric, of the cultures of the Congo and Mississippi rivers.
