Harvard Dance Center Showing: Initiation – In Love Solidarity


Saturday, November 13, 2021, 4:00pm


Harvard Dance Center—Online or in-person

Initiation – In Love Solidarity is a choreographic narrative exploring the embodiment of the Middle Passage, and the resilience and evolving identities of women in the African diaspora. A film component of the work was created at historic sites in New England related to the transatlantic slave trade and emancipation. The imagery of the cowrie shell is present throughout, chosen as an emblem of the transformative identity of the Black female body.
