4:00pm Readings + 6:30pm Artist Talk

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served

Since the early 2000’s contemporary Africana choreographers and companies have been transforming and up-ending expectations of audiences and critics. They challenge categorizations and explode assumptions about the modern, the contemporary, and the traditional. Offering reimaginations of conventional approaches to Africana performance practices.

Join us for an artist-talk with choreographer Olivier Tarpaga of the Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project, followed by a roundtable discussion with artists and scholars, including André M. Zachery, Rosamond S. King, Ph. D., Charmaine Wells, and others. Curated, moderated, and hosted by Margit Edwards, Ph.D. Candidate in Theatre and Performance & the 2018/19 Senior Assistant Director of Programs at the Segal Center.

Produced by Margit Edwards in collaboration with the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center.

Additional support provided by Martin Ruck, Interim Director, and Zee Dempster, Assistant Director for the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean (IRADAC).
