Gregory Maqoma: Broken Chord
February 16, 2023 @ 7:30 pm$32
South African choreographer Gregory Maqoma is a curatorial visionary who merges movement, theater, dance, visuals, and music with a sense of pulse and breath. Featuring four soloists and an onstage a cappella chorus, Maqoma’s new work tells the story of a South African–based chorus whose tour through North America and England in the late 19th century was marred by the realities of racism. The piece concretizes the burden of the white gaze and what it feels like to move beyond the constricting box it constructs.
