Flint
By LaTefia Bradley

Flint is a dance work that addresses the Flint Water Crises. This liberating and thought-provoking choreography combines visual art and dance, and shows images of the people of Flint, Michigan in order to draw attention to a problem that is not only happening in Flint, but all around the United States.

Another Side of You
by Allen Chunhui Xing

Another Side of You explores the inner struggles that many face conforming to society expectations.

Akwantuo: The Journey
by Mustapha Braimah

Akwantuo: The Journey is a piece about immigrants and their experiences living in the United States, exploring what it means to acquire a visa and make the journey across national and cultural borders. The struggles, difficulties, frustrations and the wait will all be magnified. The piece combines traditional African, contemporary and Ghanaian dance theater to elaborate this difficult subject.

This performance will take place in the Dance Theatre and the Grand Pavilion. Please note that non-traditional audience seating may be used for this event.
