Choreographer Reggie Wilson’s compelling new work, Citizen, investigates what it means to belong and not belong, probing the nuanced layers that lie beneath public versus private. His Brooklyn-based performance group boldly blends contemporary dance and African traditions, drawing from the movements of blues, slave and gospel cultures to create provocative works that both honor the past and break new ground.
This PEAK performance is made possible by a grant from the
