Call to Remember is a shared offering of improvisation, experimentation, and conjuring exploring Black pedagogy, artistry, and activism in dance. Lead artist Leslie Parker seeks to create a work that prioritizes Blackness and explores remembrance as a means to cultivate community.
During times of unrest, uncertainty, and the unknown we are called to action; to take heed without hesitation or restriction and to be unbounded by space. Call to Remember contains this collaborative improvisation between dance artists, an experience in real-time, a sharing, an uprising of real stories embedded deep within the subconscious. It holds a moment to conjure freedom, protection, and love in where Blackness with all of its complexities and intersecting identities exists now and in the future.
