Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Online

A Black, POC and LGBTQ+ celebratory space and an open invitation for participation, learning and conversation with all.

Come as you are. See us as we are. Imagine and act on what can be.

Our inaugural BlackLight Summit is a year-long dance initiative that investigates how time, people, possibility and hope come together to examine legacy, citizenship and scholarship. The summit asks, through the practice of being socially responsible within the arts: How do we create traditions? How do we transform them into enduring legacies?

To interrogate this unique historical moment, the BlackLight Summit seeks to be a spark that ignites daring innovation and reveals the creativity within the dance ecosystem in America. The peak of the BlackLight Summit is a virtual three-day convening that features roundtable conversations, movement labs and artistic presentations from BlackLight featured artists Micaela Taylor, Johnnie Cruise Mercer, Candace Scarborough and Jamal Abrams. Our initiative aims to re-envision how dance can be a conduit to galvanize imagination, resilience and inventiveness.

All events will be able to be experienced virtually and will be free.

Clarice Smith presents Veiled Revue & I AM IN A BASEMENT, Dec 3, Online

Clarice Smith presents Veiled Revue & I AM IN A BASEMENT, Dec 3, Online

“Veiled” and “I AM IN A BASEMENT”

Thursday, December 3, 2020 7:30 pm

By: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Online.

Veiled Revue
By Amber Daniels and Becky Hill

Veiled ciphers through historic vaudeville repertoire extracting inspiration to create an abstract dance theater work. In an era of #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, American territory borders, a global pandemic, a monumental presidential election and further investigations of social norms, we are researchers with the knowledge that the present is affected by our past. Using vignettes, audiences will simultaneously experience both the despair that haunted the entertainment industry of the vaudeville era, as well as the joy. We will manipulate how vaudeville was viewed then versus the transformation of what it could be today. The piece will be performed in “armor,” a costume that covers the body entirely to erase gender, sexuality, race and class. It is our hope through this investigation, we will have audiences question, react and be moved to action.

I AM IN A BASEMENT
By Tristan Koepke

Reflecting on creative practices on pause, Tristan builds small accumulations that give way to lacy patterns of ritual that unfold and rupture into chaotic, effervescent celebrations of catharsis and release. Sinewy threads of movement repeat and intervene in a contemplation exertion, endurance and destruction.
