About the Project

In The Thrust Towards The Future...I Want To Leave Something Of Use is a one-hour multidisciplinary work inspired by the Great Migration of African Americans in America from 1916 to 1970. Drawing on insights from Isabel Wilkerson's book, "The Warmth of Other Suns," this abstract, non-linear work brings together post-modern and neo-classical African American dancers through the use of movement, text, video and original score.
