Event Details

Under Construction is an experimental space where artists can investigate emerging ideas while engaging in dialogue with audience members to help gain new insights for their developing creative work. This sharing is unique in that it invites the audience to participate in the process of building a new artistic vision in a space that encourages risk taking and innovation.

Under Construction’s featured artists are Maritza Mercado-Narcisse, Kesha McKey, Catherine Caldwell, and Nicole Boyd-Buckles.

DANCING WHILE BLACK: On Fertile Ground presented by New York-based Angela’s Pulse and New Orleans-based Junebug Productions, engages three generations of Black women choreographers from across the nation with New Orleans communities, culture bearers, and Black college students. Through workshops, site-responsive performance, and work-in-progress showings, collaborators will explore art making practices for social movement building. This cultural exchange is rooted in the past and present legacy of Black creative change-making in New Orleans.

Free and open to the public. No registration neccessary.

DANCING WHILE BLACK is supported by Surdna Foundation and Dance/USA’s Engaging Dance Audiences. The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster sustainable communities in the United States – communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy environments, strong local economies, and thriving cultures. Engaging Dance Audiences is administered by Dance/USA and made possible with generous funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
