Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group: POW...

Presented by Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston at The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

For more than 20 years, Reggie Wilson and his Fist and Heel Performance Group have explored the spiritual and mundane traditions of Africa and its diaspora through contemporary dance. Expanding on his previous research of African American spiritual worship and movement, Wilson’s newest work, POWER, considers how the Black Shaker community might have lived and worshipped. POWER takes inspiration from notable Shaker women leaders like Mother Ann Lee, founder of the Shaker community, and Mother Rebecca Cox Jackson, founder of the first African-American Shaker community in Philadelphia. Featuring a thrilling cast of dancers and musicians, POWER examines and enlivens Shaker values, contributions, practices, and history through a postmodern American lens.
